Standard "screensaver" by Amazon is pictures of authors. All of those depicted authors are, indeed, dead.
A "screensaver" is a picture that is displayed on screen when the device is switched off. Remember that an e-ink display doesn't need power to maintain content, only to change it.
Some people were hacking their Kindles to load other pictures than "Dead authors". Those hacks do not work anymore. I expect that there will be new hack available very soon. It always is.
