Screensaver lost

Recently the screensaver has stopped working. The settings are all OK and it previews OK in the dialogue box, but when I leave the computer nothing happens. It did work when I first had the computer, and have since loaded quite a few programms. I tried Restore but it did not work and came up with "an unspecified error"

Have recently bought a wireless mouse or keyboard?

Yes, I have recently installed a MS Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 Keyboard & Mouse.

Which often is the answer to your problem. The signal from mouse or keyboard keeps the PC "awake" and therefore disables the screensaver.

Use a wired version to test if it's your issue.

Thanks for the tip I went to Microsoft site and downloaded the optional update -"HID Non User Input Data Filter and it has resolved the issue.
Many thanks
