Re: both monitors go black and freeze

The screen saver is started by windows, gPhotoShow has no control on it.
Normally video players disable screen saver when playing something, the same should be done also by browsers.

Re: ControlSS shows disabled after resuming from sleep

ControlSS icon only reflects the windows screen saver status, if it displays "disabled" it means that for some reason the windows screen saver is disabled and can't be started. I don't know why this happens after resuming from sleep, anyway ControlSS only reads the screen saver status from windows a...

Re: both monitors go black and freeze

From the symptoms your pc problem seems to be related to the display adapter (or its drivers), in any case it is not something that can be fixed in gPhotoShow. Since the blank happens after some minutes it could related to temperature, when GPU temperature raises too much it is turned off to prevent...

Re: both monitors go black and freeze

Hello, Crtl-Alt-Del is a system wide shortcut, it is handled directly by windows bypassing any running program, even if gPhotoShow was frozen by pressing ctrl-alt-del windows takes control and allows you to kill it. Because of this and the fact that after pressing alt-f4 and ctrl-f4 few time the pc ...

Re: both monitors go black and freeze

Hello, nobody else reported similar issue, I am running gPhotoShow continuously for weeks without problems so I think it is unlikely the problem is caused by gPhotoShow. If gPhotoShow freezes for any reason you should be able to get back control of the pc with ctrl-alt-del key combination (ctrl-shif...

Re: Media keys while screen saver is running.

It is not clear in which way you start the screen save but basically there are two ways: 1) start gPhotoShow directly (for example with the Preview button) 2) windows starts the configured screen saver (for example when idle time expires or with ControlSS menu item Start Screen Saver) I guess media ...

Re: Slow start with 8.3.1

I am afraid I can't do anything to workaround this issue. step 1 is the time needed to create an empty DirectX texture, a single DirectX api call. Probably it's a misbehavior in NVidia drivers, I wrote to NVidia developers forum to see if it is a known issue. For now only solution is to switch to St...
