    Any ideas?

    I listen to music at work via Radio Tuner and would hate to have to
    give up music. Our office must display a specific screen saver on all
    computer monitors and screensavers will not work when WMP is playing -
    even minimized.

    For music, use a new-fangled invention called a radio (AM or FM).
    Screensavers from the wrong source cah do more damage than you can
    possibly imagine; what is that "must" crap?

    In response to Robert Baer:
    Our reprographics center outsource company has appearance standards
    including signage and what is displayed on computer screens. Hence the
    "must" have screensaver.

    To Tee Jay:

    The client company forbids downloads of any non-work-related software.

    To all:

    The "radio" will not work around multiple copiers, fluorescent lights,
    and 3 computers. The interference is so strong that it wouldn't pick
    up a station a block away.

    Incidentally, I found the solution myself: Windows Media Players 9 and
    up have a checkbox allowing or disallowing screensaver to run. So I
    checked the box "Allow Screensaver", since I'm not watching movies with

    Thanks to all,
