Disk swaps during screensaver

  1. Hi,
    anybody pls help. Every time the screensaver pops up / lcd turns automatically off, the disk begins to swap. Windows itself or some sort of program are probably running in the background. I donĀ“t know if this is my antivirus or some automatic defrag, but it is really annoying.
    Thanx
    lugh~

    AV could be using this time for scans, yes. Since the PC is 'idle'.
