Also, I am not understanding what to do when in safe mode. It's a Laptop, so what do I need to do?

Okay. Well, it doesn't happen all of the time. Should I still try it?

Have you downloaded any third party desktop themes ?
If so from where and if you have uninstall it or delete it which ever the option is and switch to a built in windows aero theme and test.

Bing Desktop. It changes to Bing's daily picture each day. I will try it.

The only thing about Bing Desktop, is that it's an update. So, if I uninstall it, it will be coming back wanting me to install it again since it's an update. So, what do I do?

No it should be okay although I've never used it,
Does it run on the screen saver when your computer sleeps,
You might just need to reset your power saver plan,
Power Plan - Select

Also possibly turn off hibernation,
Hibernate - Enable or Disable
Which is different than sleep mode

No, the computer doesn't have a screensaver. The screen goes off after no one is using it, and shortly after that it goes to sleep or hibernation. I will do the following as you recommended.

I'm not sure which computer we're talking about anymore
Remind me if this is a laptop or a desktop
Desktops would not need a hibernation use and it's much faster to shut down than use hibernation/ hybrid sleep mode
so use regular sleep mode and the timing you want,

Only a laptop would be okay on hybrid sleep but only on low battery

I've found generally people that use hybrid sleep never really shut down their machines which pending updates could be waiting to fully install.
