I'm having a problem with the flurry screensaver. It successfully triggers after the defined time, but it is low fps and visibly affects the computers performance for a few minutes after it wakes. During this, window movement is slow, clicks do not register immediately, but mouse movement is crisp and unaffected.

Thanks for all the wonderful tutorials and help - it made making my first hackintosh very enjoyable!

specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150
mobo: GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD3H (rev. 1.2) LGA 1150
mem : 16gb G.SKILL Ripjaws Series (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
gpu : nvidia geforce gtx 1070 founders edition

I've had this exact same issue ever since upgrading to Sierra. Did you figure anything out yet?

Same here. My litte Wordaround: Install the "SaveHollywood"-Screensaver und let it play some HD Content, for example stuff downloaded from youtube. After wake, I can use the machine without any problem. But I still have the problem that the system chrashs, sound is stuttering, display gets dark, system reboots

OK, updated.

i've just avoided using the screensaver so far - it seems like display sleep and system sleep work just fine. anyone else find any workarounds?

My problem happened even without it going into a screensaver. If I leave it idle, sometimes when I come back it's just sluggish for about 20 seconds. Then it goes back to running smoothly again.
