Changing the screensavers on a time?

When I had my Kindle 3 in stock, the wallpaper would change every now and then.

However, at the moment the wallpapers are no longer changing. Is this supposed to be the case?

From the Readme.txt file:

If you want to randomize the sequence in which your screensavers will be shown, create a blank file named *random* in the linkss folder (right alongside the "auto" file), and then do a full restart of your Kindle! This will shuffle your screensavers around on each boot.

Not at all.

Thanks for the tip Anonimo, but that is not what I was trying to do.

At the moment, they are being randomly selected. However, they are not being shuffled at a set time interval.

For instance, after 10 minutes of inactivity, the screensaver does NOT turn up. It only shows up when I lock the screen.

I would like to have my screensavers change AFTER they're locked -- meaning that the kindle remains locked and after say 5 minutes, the screensaver changes.

Is there a good way to go about doing this?

Why waste battery and screen life, it's not your picture frame

Nope, the SS *never* changes while the Kindle is locked, and that's always been the case, even on stock firmwares (at least for all firmwares from 2.5 to 3.3).
