    dont see anyone else mentioning this, but when i have civ vi opened, either in foreground or background, my screensaver doesnt kick in. this is really annoying as i tend to leave games like civ open all the time.

    the screen saver works if i move set it to work on a hot corner and move the cursor to that corner, but the energy saver settings dont kick in then.

    I think most people expect the screensaver NOT to kick in when playing Civ ....

    My "screen saver" is the screen goes black... I can go downstairs to get a drink and when I go back upstairs, the screen is black, so it's not a long delay.

    This does not happen when I'm playing civ6. I'll walk away from the game and come back in the morning and the screen is still lit and ready for me. I have not tried this with a different screen open (ie with civ6 in the background).

    So it's not just you, it just doesn't bother me.
