Hello kiran,

most OS do not support screensavers, because saving battery power (by dimming out the backlight) is more important than a fancy screensaver.

If Android will support screensaver, you'll probably find an Intent that is being broadcasted.

Thanks plusminus.

I think there is no support for screen savers at this time.
