James,

Yes, this is exactly what I am suggesting... a method to assign a
screensaver to the "off" state. This may (or may not) be a different from
the one used in the "play" or "on" state. Vidur had a nice suggestion, and
that would work for me, but I certainly would not want to change the way
the
current screensavers are implemented if users find those acceptable.

In effect, this would be a "new" feature but really just an assignment of
existing functionality to a new state. While I can't imagine this being
difficult to do since the bulk of the work has already been done (the
screensavers), I admittedly have no solid knowledge of the application
architecture and it might be a bigger request that I envision. Either way,
I suppose I need to file a request in Bugzilla for any official
consideration, eh?
