Windows 7: Dual Monitors and Screen Saver?

07 May 2010   #1

Dual Monitors and Screen Saver?

My first issue is that my screen saver doesn't even turn on. I have it set to 20 minutes of inactivity and the screen saver will kick in, then 40 minutes later its suppose to shut the monitor off. I've left the room with the monitors on and upwards of an hour and all the computer has done was went to sleep.

I do, however, have my slide show changing every 3 minutes. I don't think this would effect the screen saver but I figured I would throw it out there.

Any ideas on why the screen saver isn't turning on and my monitors won't turn off (I notice this issue on my laptop too occasionally by the way.)? I'm on and off my desktop a lot, and I would hate for something to happen to them (Since I dropped a pretty penny on them) because windows wasn't doing what its suppose to do or I turned on/off the wrong thing.

And another side question, does anyone have any issues with the clock changing time? Both my computers randomly change times on me, and its getting frustrating.

Thanks for any help in advance.

I found that changing the Advanced Settings in Power Options worked for me. You will want to go to:
Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings\Change advanced power settings
