Hello JJM, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Test it with your mouse USB receiver/transmitter unplugged from your computer to see if that may be the issue. There have been issues in Vista with a wireless mouse causinf the screen saver to not work. See these two MS article to see if they be related to your issue.
