    Microsoft Bubbles Screensaver

    In your case I would go with spapakons suggestion and try using the Watch 4 Idle app since it appears that you can adjust the settings somewhat. I've never used it so I would have to install it to test its capabilities. With my suggestion, because the Microsoft Bubbles screensaver has no settings such as the ability to use the escape button to turn it off for example, verses using the mouse, you're basically stuck using the mouse and if the mouse moves; as in your case with a rocking ship you'd have to click on the icon again. Since you're using a laptop though, you could just disable the mouse if you're using one since you have the pad on a laptop. In that instance, it would take touching the pad to turn it off. Good luck. I have a feeling that Microsoft has had a lot of feedback with regards to the transparent screensavers so maybe they'll come up with a fix for it, who knows?

    You are welcome! Also about the ESC button, I don't really remember, but it might be possible to configure it in the settings to stop with ESC. Have a look.

    I couldn't get that Watch for Idle program to start Bubbles Screensaver in Windows 7 (transparent background) mode, but I wrote a program years ago which does the trick with Task Manager. It is set for 1 minute idle time.

    Read the previous posts. Watch 4 idle loads an application (EXE) after a set interval of inactivity. You can configure it to load a screensaver (SCR). If you unhide known file extensions in Windows Explorer settings and then change the extension of a screensaver file from SCR to EXE, you could also double-click to start manually the screensaver, but of course the point is to execute automatically after some seconds (minutes).
