Googling the problem suggests that there is a process running in the background so that the PC doesn't realise that all activity has stopped and thus allowing the screensaver to start.

This thread click here suggests that a Dell process is running and further down that ehtray.exe, a Media Centre process is running. When these processes were turned off in msconfig the screensaver worked again.
