From here you can configure additional options governing the
behavior of the screen saver.
Blank screen timeout
Determines the number of minutes that the screen saver
will draw before blanking the screen and completely giving up the CPU to other
Timeout before password is required
Determines how many seconds the screen saver should run
before it will require password validation when it wakes up. This is useful
for times when the screen saver kicks in while you are reading what’s on the
screen or if you step away from your workstation briefly.
Duration override (lengthen or shorten default Display
This slider allows you to extend (override) the all of

or using the randomizer). The value specified by this slider is the number of

is useful for slowing things down for normal viewing (or speeding them up if

Determines how much processing time the screen saver receives

demand on the CPU. In general, it is a good idea to keep this set to the “Low”
setting unless the screen saver does not appear to be animating smoothly.
Controls how fast the animations are drawn. This allows
users of faster systems to slow things down so that they can watch them.
Seconds to display title
This allows you to configure how long the name of the
currently running settings will be displayed in the top center of the screen
before being erased. A setting of zero will keep the name from being displayed
