WisSaver is a small screen saver for Windows that displays the Desktop background (ie. your wallpaper).

I made this utility because I was annoyed by the "This computer has been locked" window when I locked my workstation. Setting this screen saver with a short wait time allows me to enjoy my wallpaper better when my computer is locked.

Note: As it displays a static image, this program does not really "save your screen". You should set a power saving mode to switch off the screen after some time.
