This may not be the screen saver but the automatic key lock. If it only 
happens when you close the slide then this is probably the case. Just 
disable automatic key lock in your phone's settings. If it were the screen 
saver then your phone will still responde as soon as you hit a key. If 
it's the key lock then you'll have to either open the slide or hit the 
unlock key combination to get keys to responde again. Automatic key lock 
can be confusing since it can make it look like your phone has just 
stopped responding to keys. To prevent the screen 
saver from activating when using loadstone just set loadstone's screen keep 
awake timeout to 5 seconds or so shorter than your screen saver's timeout. I 
think the screen saver can only be set to 90 seconds at maximum so set it to 
this and set the timeout in loadstone to 85 seconds and you should have no 
more problems.
