Missing screensaver

Screensavers are not important, they just put stress on your graphics card and cpu, ya they look pretty.

I set my screensaver for two minutes to check that it works properly. I have Windows Media Player running, and after 5 minutes, it still hasn't kicked in. Does it not work if WMP is running? I haven't touched the mouse or keyboard.
