How to keep second monitor from going to screen saver

I want to use a second monitor as a cheap digital signage solution, but do not want that second monitor to go into screensaver or hibernation as long as the PC is on. Is there a way to do that?

  1. Go to your Control Panel and open Power Options.

    Change the following settings:

    Turn off monitor: Never
    Turn off hard disks: Never
    System standby: Never

    Click OK

    This will apply to both monitors.
  2. Thanks, but I only want the screensaver to apply to one monitor. Any ideas on that?
  3. Just turn the other one off.
  4. Yep. As far as I am aware there is no built in way to do this in XP. There may be a 3rd party app out there to do that but it's easier to just turn off the monitor when not needed.
  5. OK.Thanks for the insight.
