Hi all, and sorry for my english I'll try my best.

I'm currently using my windows 7 x64 desktop pc as a server (with synergy 1.4.2 beta installed), and as client i'm using my old laptop with Ubuntu 11.04 and synergy 1.3.6 x86 installed (the 1.4.2 beta version for linux can't be installed for some errors). Even in this cross-platform and cross-versions situation everything is working perfectly, wich is great! :) I've only one little problem: on Unbuntu, neither the screensaver nor monitor standby works anymore, but as soon as i kill the process synergyc everything works again. Maybe it's already solved in the 1.4.2 beta version? Is there any workaround to solve this problem?

Meanwhile i'll wait with no hurry, I think this program is really wonderful, I was looking for something like this for a long time! My congratulations!

You should try setting screenSaverSync on the server to false.

Edit: Here's the link to the configuration documentation:

Since the problem occurs even if not connected to a server i was lured to think it was a client problem (wich hasn't configuration files), but setting screenSaverSync on the server to false solved the problem. Sorry for wasting your time on something so simple! Thanks again!
