lotsawater screensaver

so i have the lotsawater screen saver, and it's installed, but no matter what i do, i can't get it to work right! i have the option to use a screenshot enabled, but it always makes the screen black before it comes on. any idea how i can fix it?

in the system prefrences when you are selecting screen saver make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the list. There you will find all your custom screen savers.

I have the same problem and I think it is because I have password check enabled (so when I want to reactivate the computer, I have to enter my password). You as well?

"reactivate the computer" do you mean waking it from sleep? Is there a way to make it so i need a password to wake it from sleep? that would be nice

It's a security feature to keep people from reading your screen when your away. It would be great if there was a way to turn it off independently from password check.
