Sometimes I remember the old times before the Web when, once connected with some BBS and started some download, my screen saver activated, making the download a mess of errors. Times are changed, but screensavers not. If you ever once had the need to disable your screensaver for whatever reason, you will appreciate ScrnSaveSwitch Plus (I'll call SSS Plus, for brevity). This tiny and nifty program allows you to disable your screen saver by only clicking one of four small buttons located upon the status bar. Moreover, if you want to change the settings of the screen saver, you are only at one button-click length from the properties window, thanks to the second small button. Of the other two ones remaining, one starts the screen saver point blank, the last offers you the wide range of options to quit windows: from rebooting to shutting off, passing through rebooting to DOS. Aside from screensaver options, SSS Plus offers you a rather wide range of options for button resizing (only registered version), number of clicks (single or double) needed to activate the buttons, which action is started by clicking, shortcut keys.
