I am using Windows 7 Professional. I have the screensaver time property set to 8 minutes, but the screensaver starts after only 1 minute of inactivity.
I've tried increasing/decreasing the time but with no effect. Any ideas?
I think the problem may be in your registry. Open up "regedit" and go to:
Once in the Desktop Registry folder (not in any of the sub folders) look for the value:
The value is based on time in seconds. So for 8 mins it should be 480
Furthermore, if you are on a laptop be sure to check your power settings to make sure they're not conflicting with the screen saver.
