Activate/deactivate screensavers

With the Z-Cron commands SCREENSAVERON and SCREENSAVEROFF the Windows screensaver can be activated or deactivated for a specified time intervalt.

The commands do not start the screen saver itself, but simply activate it in the Windows settings.


If the waiting time for the Windows screensaver is set to one minute, the screensaver will appear one minute after the SCREENSAVERON command is run.

In combination with the STARTREMOTE command, these commands can also be executed on a remote computer in the local network. Z-Cron must be installed on both the target computer and the computer which issues the command.
