Screensaver won't turn on

Postby andrey » Mon Sep 09, 2002 6:58 pm

Running windows XP, Samsung 955DF monitor with latest monitor drivers. Gainward Geforce Ti200 video card.

I have been doing alot of tweaking, setting changes, and stuff like that, but I just can't figure this one out.

going to display properties, I turn on the screensaver, set it to one minute and turn on passowrd protect. 5 minutes go by, no screensaver. same thing really with the "turn monitor off after X minutes", it just won't do it.

any help with this?

Check your BIOS settings. You may have the power management settings disabled. Also check under the power options icon in the control panel.

everything seems fine..

what causes a screensaver to come on? lack of mouse/keyboard movement? or lack of CPU/HD activity?

screensaver still isn't coming on..
