    Hi,

    I've just upgraded to Lion and now i can't turn on the screen saver by dragging the pointer to a corner like i did in Snow Leopard. Can anyone please tell me how i can fix this?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your reply but the hot corners are set up as they were in Snow Leopard. The other three work fine. It's just the one i have set to start screen saver that won't work anymore.

    Many probs w/10.7.3 re: Dock & hot corners

    Hi all,

    Unlike others here, I seem to be having comprehensive difficulties with hot corners and the dock. Both have disappeared and any efforts I make to re-set my system preferences to govern these features won't save. This is really a big problem for my work. I only noticed the problems after most recent update, and only then after updating to most recent version of Skype. Not sure if a Skype interaction is causing this or not. :(

    Yes, screensaver as Hot Corner doesn't respond: restart it?

    Restarting my computer fixed it.

    But I had the same problem.
