    Hi. I recently downloaded an animated zombie screensaver (it's quite cool!). But i noticed that, even while NOT activated, my email program slowed up noticeably today. I chose a different screensaver, and the slowness issue disappeared immediately. SO: even when NOT in use, do screensavers slow down the overall performance of the MAC? :confused:

    No, they shouldn't. It might be worth changing your screensaver to the zombie one again, then rebooting and seeing if the problem persists.
