#456 closed enhancement (fixed)

Print screen doesnt work as expected when screensaver is running

Print screen is problematic in R5 (sometimes takes corrupted screenshots, or takes them too late), and produces lagged shots (screensaver with decor artefacts) in Haiku.

Suggest being able to take a screenshot without affecting screensaver state (ignore keypress - screensaver continues to run) or delay state change so that the screen can be captured.

Or disable print screen altogether for screensavers.

Fixed now, the print screen key is now ignored when the screen saver is running.

One day I hope we'll have an API to manage screensaver events, like this one.
