Change ScreenSaver timeout setting in Windows 7 [How To]
They've disabled the ability to increase the timeout for the screensaver on our PCs. I used to use tweakui for this. Anyone know of a Windows 7 utility that will do this?

You can change screensaver timeout settings as follows:
Right click desktop > Personalization settings > Select Screensaver. Choose value under Wait.
Else you can do it via the registry also.
Open regedit and navigate to the following location
Here in right pane, right click Windows and select > New > Key. Name it Control Panel.
Now right click on this Control Panel and again select > New > Key. Name it Desktop.
Next click on Desktop key to highlight it. Now in the right pane, right click empty space > New > String Value > Type ScreenSaveTimeOut > Enter.
Now right click ScreenSaveTimeOut > Modify > give it a Value Data in seconds.
