A screensaver is a computer program that is automatically started after a settable period of inactivity of all input devices and varies the display on the screen. The spectrum ranges from a black screen and simple colour changes to elaborate 3D screensavers, some of which are highly entertaining, but at the expense of computing time.

It is normally terminated as soon as data is received from the input devices (e.g. by moving the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard).


purpose

The original purpose of a screen saver was to prevent a constant image from being burnt into the tube screens of the 1980s and early 1990s during long breaks from work. With more modern CRT monitors and flat screens there is no longer a risk of burn-in, so screensavers are now only used for entertainment or for reasons of data protection. The screen saver prevents curious people from seeing what a user has on the screen while they are away. The optional prompt for entering a password to reactivate the desktop when the screensaver is closed can also prevent unauthorised access.

The first, worldwide commercially successful screensaver was 1989 After Dark, whose module Flying Toasters still enjoys special cult status today.
