Windows 7: Screen saver not coming on!

Screen saver not coming on!

Fresh install of Windows 7 and I'm convinced that one of the MS updates I elected to install is causing this. I've read other forums that said it's related to having a wireless mouse, but I'm using the same hardware that I've always used. The thing I did this time that I don't normally do is install all of the "optional" software updates from MS. I tried uninstalling all of the usb related drivers and letting them reinstall, no luck. Not sure how to pinpoint the prob. Any advice would be awesome.

Usb devices include a wireless mouse, and Logitech C920 webcam (webcam newly added, but screensaver wasn't an issue prior to reloading).

thx!

If you try unplugging the mouse and the computer screensaver goes on that you know that is the problem
