Screensaver for Samsung 5500 series TV?

by RoyBellwho / June 23, 2013 9:13 AM PDT

Just recently purchased a 5500 series Smart TV which I hooked up to the speaker system that covers the whole house. My plan was to listen to various radio stations (using the TuneIn app) through my TV but I noticed that there is no "screensaver" that kicks-in after a short period of time. I'm afraid I might get screen burn! I contacted Samsung and apparently they don't have "screensavers" for their TV's. Are there apps that I can download to take care of this?

Hi RoyBellwho,

Thanks for your question! As the TV only runs one app at a time, I don't be believe it's currently possible for the apps to run over top the others, so that there would be sound from one app in the background and an image from another app in the foreground.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
