AFAIK, there is no way to tell screensaver to spit the globe by default.
Perhaps it is set this way to save some CPU cycles - rotating globe can be very CPU time consumping on some system...

If you run just CPDN on a 24/7 machine, you can change this in the graphics window (right click on the WU in the 'work' tab and click 'show graphics') by giving the globe a kick with the mouse. (Or changing any other settings) The screen saver will look the same as the window.

If you run more projects or not 24/7, it will unfortunately reset:(
