[BUG] Adrenalin Edition 23.2.1

Hi all!

I am having a weird issue with AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 23.2.1

Initially, I had 23.1.1 installed (I have a RX 7900 XTX) and was using a windows screensaver to prevent burn-in on my OLED TV. Yesterday I upgraded my drivers to 23.2.1, then I had this weird issue where Screensaver would pop up when I was watching YouTube, I thought something about Windows was broken and did not even think it could be about new drivers.

I reinstalled Windows, the issue was gone. Then I thought to myself "oh Windows is being Windows" then installed the drivers back, the issue started once again. Screensaver would pop even when I am in Fullscreen while video is playing. I even tried to put the browser into full screen mode. Nothing helped.

Then I reverted my drivers back to 23.1.1, it is working as intended, I no longer get Screensaver when video is playing, but when I pause the video, it pops as expected.

Also; in 23.2.1 Screensaver will pop when playing a game in Windowed or Borderless Window modes and don't input anything for the required period of time.


Is this a known issue? Will this be fixed with an upcoming update?

For now I cannot update my drivers because Screensaver is a must for me.


Thanks for any replies.

Did you try uninstall/reinstall screensaver after the new driver?
