Attached is a class that should do what you want.
You will need to install FFI before filing it in.
To test it, evaluate the following...
(Delay forSeconds: 1) wait].
'screensaver active' inspect
and wait for your screen saver to activate.
I have only tested it on Vista.
It probably won't work on older Windows versions (95 / 98).

Hello squeak professionals,
in our process monitoring software we use a background process to update the
breakFlag := false.
delay := Delay forMilliseconds: 10.
Processor fork: [
[ breakFlag ] whileFalse: [
backgroundProcess := true. "Process is now active "
GUI update methods displaying the measured values from the process"
backgroundProcess := false. "Process is going to
] at: Processor userPriority - 5
Processor is an instance of ProcessScheduler.
Something in our GUI update software wastes memory and over some days
crashes the system. So the user has to stop the background display process
when leaving the system and to restart it when coming back. We now want to
automate this switching on and off of the GUI updates by checking the
screensaver status of windows. Our wish is to check in each update cycle,
whether the windows-screensaver is on, and depending on this status, to
update the GUI display or not.
Can anybody of you give us a hint, how to check, whether windows has
switched of the desktop-display and displaying the screensaver, or is still
displaying the desktop containing the squeak window?
Thank you very much.
