    I haven't used Watch 4 Idle for a while, but I think you can also specify a SCR file in place of an EXE, so you can configure it to run the screensaver automatically. Installed screensavers are in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 folder. Just enable known file extensions and look for SCR files.

    Exe, bat and VBS files are the only ones I can get it to work with. I'll just accept it and get used to pressing CTRL+0 before leaving my computer to execute the scr file manually. Thanks everyone for your help.

    Or use Windows + L to lock the screen but will need the password, if used, to log back in. It's great in a business or multi-user environment versus logging off or shutting down.

    It's my personal desktop and I live alone. I really just have this thing with making my computer stuff look cool (both hardware and software) :P The bubbles go great with a black+neon rainbow theme, but kinda falls flat when the screen goes black anyway, in which case it doesn't matter how well they go with the wallpaper, icons, Winamp skin etc. I consider the shortcut method to be a sufficient solution, as it works correctly now, just not... automatically, lol.
