    Yeah i didnt really notice that you were using the Screen-Saver thru the club HDMI.
    I thought you were concerned about leaving the Mac on without power saving.

    Its an old habit of mine. Traktor advise was always to disable all power saving to prevent interruptions with playback.

    But yeah, i never use a screensaver.

    See I would but it's sound-responsive (Through the Mac) so it wouldn't work. I also wrote it in Quartz Composer lol

    The Graphics card needs to send the image to another screen which stresses the CPU Which would cause Traktor to malfunction.

    Get a software or something that does the same, the software would be optimized to use minimal CPU while a screensaver would not because there is no need. Why? Its a SCREENSAVER, designed to be on when you aren't touching your mac.

    Well like I said in various posts, it worked seamlessly at home... Cheers for the sarcasm though!
