Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Can not get screen aver to appear. I set to come on after one miunte of now mouse movement and will not come on. I set the settings and hit apply and still no screen saver
If you have VISTA and a wireless mouse/keyboard, that may be the problem. This is something that a lot of people have encountered, myself included, with Vista. I have not found an acceptable solution online to date. For whatever reason, though, the wireless keyboard/mouse in constantly interacting with the computer, making it think the computer is not idle. If you have a wired mouse, you can swap out to test this out, try it and see if the problem goes away.

It sounds like you have some program running in the background that is preventing your screen saver from showing. This could be a virus scan, or some other program you unknowingly downloaded from the internet....(spyware, etc). Check to make sure nothing is running in background and do a full scan for virus, spyware, etc.
