I have windows vista ultimate 64bit, and i want to change the settings of my screensaver so it will not be on all the time, i want the screensaver to stop displaying at 20min, but when i click Settings it says:
"The screensaver has no options that you can Set" And not only this screensaver i tried others and was the same. except for photos i can change settings.

How can i change how long the screensaver should display on the computer?

I got same problem, then I de-activated the screen saver from windows registry. I don't have any screen saver enabled anymore....... !

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop
set the value of ScreenSaveActive to 0 (Zero)

You can only change how much time goes by before the screensaver starts... not how much time it actually runs. If you want the monitor to turn off after 20 minutes, then you have to adjust power settings for the monitor. If you want the screensaver to simply quit, then you'll have to move the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard.
