Vista screensave doesn't work

I have chosen a screensaver and set it at 4 minutes and less but when I leave the PC it doesn't activate after the time has elapsed, any ideas why not?

There are a number of explanations. Sometimes programs working in the background can prevent the screensaver working, the PC thinks the machine is still active.

Another common problem can be wireless keyboards or mouse. You could try isolating them if you have them to see if they are the culprits.
