Disable Screen Saver When Disk Defragmenter Active

This tweak disables the screen saver when defrag is being used.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me
Hard disks store data in bits and pieces called sectors. Each sector holds a fixed amount of data like 512 bytes. So, a large file may cover the whole disk. To combine them, disk is defragged. If the screen saver becomes active while using the disk defragmenter, it can slow down the process and may interrupt it. Some programs allow you to disable the screensaver before leaving the system for some other operation. The screensaver will not be disabled, if the defrag is run as a scheduled task. Some changes in the registry can disable the screensaver.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. If the subkeys, “\Defrag\Settings\DisableScreenSaver\”, do not exist, create them as explained below. Now, create a string value name “Default” in the right panel, if it does not exist. Right-click it and modify the data value with “Yes” to enable the setting and “No” to disable it.

Click “OK” and close the registry editor.
Restart the system or logoff to see the changes taking effect.
