I use a program called Don't Sleep.

Mine is on Windows XP, but here is the page to download a version that works with Windows 7.

I used to have a problem, that my computer would freeze up with the screensaver (wallpaper) on. Don't Sleep solved my problem for me.

I'm not knocking the other solution, I'm just sharing mine. You can choose it if you like.waveysmiley
