    I have a .bat file on my C drive which contains this code
    Code:
    @start /wait Bubbles.scr /s & rundll32 user32.dll,LockWorkStation
    When I run it I can get the Bubbles screensaver with the desktop as the background instead of the solid color. The problem is my computer restarts after about 15 seconds. Does anyone know perhaps why, and is it a problem with the code which can be fixed?

    That is what you are supposed to see, and I see that too. I am concerned as to why my computer restarts. I have power settings to high performance.

    (OP)
    What version Windows are you using including build number, and what video card? Did you create a bat file to run it?

    one thing I did note, if I remove the @ before start, the CMD window isn't "ghosted" into the screen while the SS is running. aesthetics really lol

    Maybe it is a problem with the new insider build. :(

    maybe try updating your video drivers? even downgrade them if they are the latest. not sure really. Seems it would be more about the video card than anything. I know some past video cards I have had, would overheat and reboot or scramble the screen before the system would halt

    Yea, I think so. Did you run this file from your C drive, or did you put it elsewhere? And where if you did! :)

    Well it lasted much longer, but still crapped out. I will need to do more testing. It could also be because I am using bigmuscle's Aeroglass, also.
