Question Screen Saver


After installing Mandrake 8.1, I chose a screen saver in KDE. The screen saver works but I can't shut it off or return to any function. It appears to be locked or frozen. Any help for a new "newbie" will be most appreciated.

does it do it with any screen saver you choose? how about trying a ctrl-alt-backspace when it freezes, does it allow you to kill X that way??
