This issue was driving me insane as I couldn't spot what was causing the screen saver not to start, after deep investigation it turned out that the problem is due to a defected driver of the Microsoft Wireless Receiver which is part of both of my wireless mices (Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 - Notebook & Desktop editions) If you unplug the receiver the...
