Fade to black with this light-weight, minimalist screensaver.

Overview

Minimal Screensaver is the most minimal screensaver you'll ever encounter: it simply fades your screen to black. That's it.

From the developer: "I needed a screensaver with this exact functionality and I found the Do Nothing screensaver on MacUpdate, but the link doesn't work anymore. I figured it would be faster to just make a new one, and since some people seemed to be looking for the old "do nothing" just like me, I just put it up here."

Simple, but great. Letting your display sleep is not the same thing as activating a screensaver, because the latter can (if you choose) lock your Mac and make it immediately unusable to anybody who does not have a password. Additionally, if you use Screen Sharing to access a Mac remotely, the built-in screen savers can eat up all your bandwidth when they kick in (especially if you are abroad accessing a Mac back home) and stall your remote connection. This can make it very hard and frustrating to perform even simple GUI tasks remotely. So, yeah, if all you want is a black screen, then you don't really need this. but if you need a very simple, low-bandwidth screen saver, this is a great little thing.

Or, you could just set your Energy Saver pref panel to put your display to sleep instead of starting a screen saver. That results in a black screen as well.

unless you use hot corners to activate your screensaver when away from the keyboard.

Also, invoking a screen saver can set the security mode. Nice to have it go black (no cpu usage). Some screen savers can make the machine work pretty hard.
