Screensaver issue

Hello Windows 7 Community, my screensaver for an unknown reason, returns to my desktop after a minute. Neither my mouse or my keyboard are touched to make this happen, I've tried to figure out why this is happening but i'm lost, any help is appreciated!

My first thought would be maybe opening the task manager a going to processes and then letting it sleep (or go to screensaver). then when it wakes itself up see if there is a specific processes that is waking it up. just a thought.
