Wallpaper slideshow doesnt work

It is as the title says, that feature does not work, all settings seem to be correct. Any way to force it on? Missing anything?

Try this:

Start> In search box type

edit power plan

Then press enter

Click Change advanced power settings

Click on + next to Desktop Background Settings to expand the tree

Click + next to Slideshow> Confirm it is set to Available, if not change it

If it was not set to available, that was it, test it and see if it is working now.
