Screensaver CPU usage control from Client version 6.

As of client version 6 it's possible to control the amount of CPU time used by the Screensaver. For that go to the My Grid → Device Manager, choose the profile [home, school, work or default], select the Custom radio button and go down to the Graphics section. The fields available with defaults are:

  • When displaying graphics, render at most 7 frames per second.
  • When displaying graphics, use at most 5 % of CPU.

Latter is for multi processor computers the % of 1 core.

Notably, these settings only work for the WCG projects. The website values are stored in the file which should not be edited! Change should be made through the website Device Profile venues and will take effect upon first client-server communication.
