I am using Dual Monitor now.
But the one of them is not use often, it's just for monitoring CPU RAM HARDDISK usage,clock,and some gadgets.
So I really want to have a screensaver for it.

I mean I need a screensaver which can just work on one monitor.
When my mouse move on it, it will turn off.
Are there this kind of screensaver/software??

Sorry for my English skills...it sucks...

Thank you very much.

Is this linux? If so, are the monitors two separate X sessions? –  TheLQ Jul 1 '10 at 19:43

Windows 7 has good support for running fullscreen applications on separate monitors. My recommendation would be to run your media player visualizer from the monitor you are not using. The problem with having a screensaver run on your other monitor the way a normal screensaver would is that you are still using your computer so the screensaver will never initiate.

Take a look at this article from LifeHacker and see if it helps. There's a lot of different things you can do with multiple monitors and you're bound to find something you need there.

Hmm...okay. Let's look at a few other things. Ultramon has a few screensaver extras that you may want to look at. realtimesoft.com/ultramon/tour/screensaver.asp –  BioXhazard Jul 1 '10 at 18:58
