Hello all,

I am new to this project. I find the screen saver irritating and a distraction after viewing it a couple of times. I searched for an option to disable but found none. If there is a way to disable it please post. Thanks in advance.

Sure go into the settings and turn it off or change it, but since you chose to keep your computers hidden it's impossible to give any more info than that because no one knows what OS you are running. It's different for every different OS.

To expand on Mikey's reply a

To expand on Mikey's reply a little: Enabling/disabling the screensaver is a system function, not a BOINC nor an Einstein function.  You just tell your system not to operate a screensaver in general, or not to operate the screensaver offered here in particular.
