Not quite, there apparently /are/ differences between KDE's method of
screen saving and the xscreensaver package as I know and love it.
Invoke xscreensaver, when the first window comes up choose <settings>.
The next window is 'Xscreensaver Preferences' and has two tabs, 'Display
Modes' and 'Advanced.' Choose 'Advanced' and uncheck the box by 'Power
Management Enabled.' With luck and having waved your dead chicken
correctly, that will do it.

A: Apart from the fact that viruses are supported by their authors,
use optimized, small code and usually perform well, none.
