    Does anybody out there have any idea why my screensavers do not appear after the allotted time?
    I can only view a screensaver by selecting preview.

    1.) Are you using a standard Microsoft screensaver?
    2.) Usually this happens if a program is running that will not let the computer activate the screensaver.

    This can also happen if you are using a wireless mouse with a USB receiver. The signal between the receiver and the mouse is sometimes considered "activity" and thus screensavers won't launch.
