Is it possible to load saver without reboot ?

As part of my experiments with my tertiary box (FreeBSD 12-CURRENT 
amd64), I am trying an apparently weird thing : load the saver without 
rebooting. I configured the beastie saver by running 'bsdconfig console' 
(although I could have just as well simply edited rc.conf myself).

Normally, beastie would be expected to run only when I reboot. But in 
theory, it should be possible to load the saver without rebooting.

Anyone has any tips ? Thanks.
