I came here looking for answers too. I updated my Nvidia drivers about 2 weeks ago and Windows screensaver and "Display turn off" are randomly working (not working). Sometimes the screensaver will work, sometimes not. The actual display turning off is only very infrequently.

No new software... except for Nvidia driver 391.35. After this started happening I did all the Windows Updates, no help at all.
