Windows 7: Screensaver?

Screensaver?

Hey guys,

For some reason my windows 7 won't start up the screen saver. It'll work maybe right after I reboot my computer but after that it refuses to work. I have it setup so once the screen saver starts it takes me back to where I need to type my password but it refuses to do that. I use a wireless mouse, is that the issue? Thanks!
