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.

Sadly, no processes causes the issue :/, i even checked the power management options and everything checked out okay, does norton 360 have any issues with screensavers?

Turns out it is only the photo gallery and photo screen savers with the issue, all the other ones work fine, i'll just not use them, sorry if i wasn't specific.
