Ok, never mind... The point was not whether you had a screensaver installed or not... it was the setting of the timers. The timers still run, even if there is no screensaver.
If the screensaver is turned off the timer is disabled, so the count down can't be changed.

As I mentioned before, this seems to be an issue with Windows itself. If you do a bit of searching, you'll find numerous people asking the same question around the world.. Quite a few people have also asked on the MS TechNet forums, and in each post that I have seen a moderator has requested that the information be passed onto the software development team.

Have patience good people, it'll be resolved at some point before we die. But if it isn't, I highly doubt it'll cause any of you sleepless nights because your monitor doesn't go into standby automatically...

You got the point. For example I simply reconfigured what to happen when I close the notebook (do nothing, and it automatically switches off the screen).

Actually no... it's simply ignored.

Screensaver "off" means no screensaver name is listed in the Control Panel's SCRNSAVE.EXE key... So what happens when the timer gets signalled is there's no screensaver to load.

Ok, essentially different ways of saying the same thing. I was referring to the timeout setting where the user selects the screen saver, the average user wouldn't ever go into the registry to edit settings.

The timeout setting in the registry (found in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop" if anybody's curious) wouldn't be 'deleted' or 'cleared' when disabling the screensaver; but as you just said, it's ignored so it won't make any difference. That's why I say that the count down timer relating to a screensaver wouldn't affect this particular issue.
