Question Inop Screen Savers?
I have XP on an HP pc. Up until a month ago my screen savers worked just fine. Now, nothing happens after the programmed time. My desktop theme remains in view and the screen saver never kicks in. Anybody have an idea?
Thanks
Tim

Yup! It works just fine when previewing. The screen saver just doesn't start up after the 15 minutes that I asked for. I've tried different lenghts of time etc. Could there be a program running somewhere that prevents the screen saver from activating?
