    My mom just asked me if it is possible for her to run her screensaver at the login screen of different accounts.
    I can't figure out how to do this or of its even possible.

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    I was just thinking about this yesterday. I do not think it is possible. I remember I left my Mac at the login window for a few hours a couple of days ago. When I came back, the screensaver had not activated. The display did sleep, however.

    I'm not sure about a screensaver, but I do know that if you set the display to sleep at a certain time, it will sleep at that set time during the login window. Could be a good workaround.

    I find this disappointing. I know it will sleep the screen at login but it will not activate a screensaver.
    There has to be a way to do this.

    This may work, but many would agree it's wayyyy to complicated. Maybe a better solution.
