How to turn off Screensaver or change it?

I just purchased a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 for my daughter and I'm not sure what she did, but now when she hits the power button to lock it, a Samsung Screensaver comes on. I don't want any screensaver if I can. If I have to have one I'd like something different. I've looked through the display settings but don't see anything for screensaver. Does anyone know what she did to turn this on (I had played with it a bit before giving it to her and didn't notice it) and/or how to turn it off?

I have just been through your manual and I can't find anything about screensavers either.......
hopefully another user will be able to help you out.


It would be helpful to know what type of screen saver it is, might help us to locate where it came from
i.e is it the Samsung logo, is it one of the lock screen wallpapers choices

Actually, I know exactly what you are talking about. I was looking through the apps and saw the Samsung screensaver (which just looks like a demo movie or something). I ran it, but forgot to shut it off. When I locked the tab and put it down, it drained my battery to nothing in about 7 hours! Anyway, once the battery was charged enough to turn the tab back on, I quickly shut off the screensaver. You just go into the app (look through your apps list for "Samsung Screensaver") and uncheck the box at the top. I went even further and disabled the app altogether via application management to prevent that from ever happening again.

Thanks BrianG.

These Tab 2's are proving to be very different from previous models and it's getting harder to answer the questions accurately.

Your section really needs you all to help each other out like that :good:

No problem!

This is my first tablet, but as with all my gadgets, I like to go through all the apps and settings and see how things work. I also have an HTC Merge phone, and while it does run Android (Froyo), it IS quite different.

A little off topic, but it would be nice if there was a "tips and tricks" section for this tab. There are a lot of neat little tidbits on this thing!
