    I like to leave my PowerBook on a random screen saver, but I don't like certain screen savers in the list on the left side. Is there anyway to remove them from the list, but not delete them permanently? Can I change their directory so they don't show up? Basically I want it to select a screen saver at random from the ones I like, not all of them. Thanks.

    Okay, I found the folder in the system library with the Apple screen savers. I am worried about moving them, and it won't let me make a new folder. What would be the best thing too do?

    Copy the good ones into a new folder elsewhere (somewhere that allows you to make one like Documents) and then run it all from that folder? :)

    Well, the problem is that the Screen Saver pref. panel looks in a specific directory (HD>Library>Screen Savers) so if I move the ones I want, I'll only be left with the bad ones. I think I'm gonna try moving the bad ones to a new folder somewhere in my home directory where I can save them, but they don't show up in the list. I'll let you know if its possible to have a custom list in the pref. pane without deleting anything.

    Down the bottom of my settings there's a Choose Folder section that should let you use any folder. :)
