    Ok i'm hoping this is an easy fix but i cant seem to get it. Every time i lock my computer then walk away i come back and the screen savor isn't on. I've tried setting it lower to see if it comes on and it never dose and also my monitor never shuts off either when locked and idle.

    Sounds like you need to go into the power management section of display properties and check some of your settings to tweak it to where you want.
    Hope this helps
