My screensaver will not turn on - despite everything set properly, it sometimes never activates. This is a problem, as I need screensaver password protection if I step away from the computer for an hour or so.
The only thing I can think of is that my mouse or keyboard driver is somehow keeping it active by somehow sending phantom keystrokes to the computer to top the screensaver activating.
I have an external USB Kensington keyboard, an external HP mouse, and my laptop is a Toshiba with Win7.
Is there any way to diagnose and fix this problem, or any utilities that could automatically password protect my computer from unauthorized use if I step away for a few minutes?
