Screen savers for Windows CE? It's sort of a novel idea, but we here at Xoanan Industries got tired of looking at out color H/PCs sit motionless for hours while they're plugged in. By default our Screen Saver Engine won't launch the currently selected screen saver if your H/PC is running on battery power. (Most people let Windows CE shut down their machine after so many minutes of inactivity while on batter power, so a screen saver wouldn't be much good in that case.)

The Screen Saver Engine for Windows CE comes with two screen savers: the Star Field and the Blank Screen screen savers. Both of these are very similar to the ones found on both Windows 98 and Windows 2000.

But the screen saver we're really proud of is Funky Spheres. We originally wrote this for the PC, but we ported it to Windows CE, and now you can enjoy Funky Spheres on your Handheld PC too!

Screen Saver Engine Overview
- Puts an icon in your system tray for easy access to configuration of your screen savers.
- Defaults to not turn on the screen saver when running on battery power.
- The Screen Saver Engine comes with two screen savers, Blank Screen and Star Field.
- Use Ctrl-Alt-S to start your screen saver at any time in any application!

Not so good for grayscale Handheld PC while on power or AC line; obviously. But offers a screen saver for WinCE 2.0 devices and a blank black screen, which can be used to see if you have bad or dead pixel(s).
