    Vista OS,
    New Gateway Laptop
    Like mentioned above the Clock Time is always off upon startup by a few hours and although all settings for the screen saver seem to be appropriate, the screen saver fails to activate by timer. Have yet to see it.

    Would there be anything that may be conflicting with those settings?

    The screensaver is based on either mouse movement or HD idle time...make sure that nothing is needing to run while you are waiting for the screensaver (antivirus, etc)

    If it's a new Gateway that you have, I would contact their support on your time issue. It could be a bad install, could be an issue with your bios clock, or other issues.
