    Windows 7 Screen saver not working

    The problem:
    I was having trouble with my screensaver coming on, I have it set for 10 min. and it wasn't coming on. I played around with the screensaver settings and play around with the power saving settings none of it seemed to help.

    The solution:
    The thing that actually solve the problem believe it or not was my cordless mouse.
    It was getting kind of old and I was thing about replacing it anyways and apparently it was keeping my screensaver from coming on. I replaced it and now my screensaver works. I just want to post this in case anybody else is having the problem, it could be their wireless mouse. Hope this helps somebody it sure pissed me off.

    I had a similar problem, it turned out it was my keyboard, the pause key was somehow stuck on. This would not allow my screensaver to come on, I had to use a program that showed what keys were currently being pressed which showed me that the pause button was on, I change my keyboard and my screensaver now works.
