iScreensaver version 6.8.5 has a number of bugfixes and improvements, including fixes for several issues that could cause issues when running under macOS Ventura 13 (currently in beta, soon to be released) Authors distributing screensavers for macOS clients should update, re-build, and re-distribute their screensavers. Authors only supporting Windows clients can upgrade at their convenience.
Fighting random screen saver activation on Big Sur - can't resume/exit the screensaver.
First off, let me say that I'm enjoying watching the iscreensaver of my 50 years of photos on my iMacPro/Monterey tremendously.
I decided to get a Mini M1 (Big Sur) and migrate my Home Automation to the M1. I use a 50inch TV as a monitor, displaying several cameras so I want that screen to never turn off.
Seems Apple has a bug, for some time now, that even with screensaver set to "never" will activate the screen saver somewhat randomly and no matter what you do you can't get out of the screen saver, short of rebooting the Mini.
I'm wondering if there is a command line method to quit iscreensaver or any screen saver that has been invoked.
Sorry for asking, but asking is my last hope to avoid having to revert backwards.
Thanks for listening/reading. Open to any/all suggestions to try 😐️
