Screen Saver won't work

#1
I have Vista on a desktop computer and the screen saver won't come on. Also,
none of the power management works. To test, I set the time to 1 minute and
it does not come on at all.

I have a fairly recent flat panel monitor. Does this damage the monitor for
the screen saver to not work?

Thanks

The screen saver does not work when you use a Microsoft wireless pointing device on a
Windows Vista-based computer

I do not want to get anything going here, BUT I have Vista Ultimate; the wife has Vista Home version and we BOTH have a Microsoft wireless mouse & keyboard and the screen saver(s) work just fine. I have tested them ALL.

Solution could be something else, maybe?

Have you tried to just click on the desktop as well? It could be that
Windows is selecting a new application to make active and that is preventing
you from getting the screensaver up.
