After I installed ML and I realized that they've removed some screensavers-

    I walked away from my computer and I came back and I thought a rave was going on with a random different saver that I've never used since I've always used the tropical beach saver and it seems like its gone.

    Speaking of this... What screensavers do you all use on ML?

    True, but I have felt that some nice screensavers can be a bit therapeutic. Thats why I liked the beach one, but Nat Geo isn't too bad at all. I'm using that on 'Classic'.

    On Lion and the first 3 Dev Prevs of Mountain Lion I used the iTunes Artwork screen saver. It was cool to just click on an album on the screen and it would start playing.

    Both Dev Prev 4 and GM now show "Your iTunes library does not contain any songs with artwork."

    I have thousands of songs and 99% of them have Cover Art, so I do not know why it's doing this now.

    Any ideas???

    I also noticed...

    On "classic" screensavers with natgeo and, my external display while having my MBP open...

    My external has a strange large black bar on the right side.

    There will be some updates for ML soon. Haha

    yea, I had a 6115cd and I can't even remember the screensavers, but obviously, I used that saver on my G4 and I guess thats it for it.

    Its not a huge deal but its strange that they cut out that saver like it used that much space. haha.

    My display sleeps after a few minutes. Haven't used screen savers since the 90's.

    haha, you must like your post a lot. :D

    I wander around the room sometimes and I kinda like to see my screensaver or its too boring. Mine just goes to sleep after ~30-40 mins but I use hotcorners if I'm really leaving.
