Screen saver does not start automatically

original title; SCREEN SAVER DOES NOT START AUTOMATICALLY

My screensaver stopped automatically to come if I use an excerpt it's turns on and will remain lit.  How can I fix or can uninstall and reinstall?

It becomes a problem growing with the screen savers. The issue is background programs and services that are enough tasks that the computer never thinks that it becomes "inactive". Programs cannot do any real work, but are cycling through their operations individual enough to keep the computer "awake".

Try to start your computer with a "clean boot", (see Microsoft Support articles below). If this resolves the issue and you definitely want your screen saver, you'll have to discern what substantive programs and services that you can live without being active all the time, and turn them off.

For what it's worth, the systems that I watched recently with this problem were 'smart phone' synchronization software recently installed and who is constantly looking for something to synchronize with regardles to know if they are connected to what whether or not. Change the start of these programs and services 'on demand' to 'always' solves the problem in these cases.

    Hello jerrylumpe

    1. If you use an old mouse, try to clean it.

    2. you can have a running process in the background that keeps XP thinking that he is busy and so the screen standby does not start.
    Go to msconfig and uncheck everything you don't need, then see if the screensaver will kick in.

    Start/run and type

    Ok

    It could be that something is resetting the timer. For example, it does take much vibration to move the mouse a little, and which will reset the timer to zero. Something like that would be possible? Or a pet that walks on the keyboard?

  • Portege M400: screen saver does not work

    Hi all

    like many of you, I think, I need the screen saver protected by start-up automatically when I let my M400 unattended for some time.
    Everything works fine if the bluetooth is introduced to the wide. Otherwise... the screen saver does not start automatically.

    Site Microsoft learns something about the problems related to (Microsoft mouse) wireless devices that do not allow the screen saver appears.
    The proposed solution is to kill a process called PCMsomething, or download an update windows named KBsomething and install it.

    I actually a bluetooth wireless (non-Microsoft) combined with my PC mouse, but no PCMsomething process is executed and, although my mouse is turned off, the screen saver organizers can't work until I turned off the bluetooth of the M400 too. In addition, windows update does not suggest a KBsomething patch to install (maybe because my mouse is not a Microsoft one?).

    Any idea to solve my problem?
    Thanks in advance.

    I had the same screen saver running for centuries (it goes right through my photos), but in the last few weeks, I am unable to find the screen to 'wake up' 'wiggle' of the mouse or press "Esc"; 'Enter' etc etc.  Its very frustrating because I have to press several keys at random and then wait about 5 minutes for the screen saver turns off.  I'm still on Windows 7 and it is up to date.

  • screen saver does not work when magic jack is pluged in. unplug mj it works

    screen saver does not work when magic jack is pluged in. unplug taking magic, the screensaver works properly.

    09/05/10 the MagicJack has released an update that prevents the screen saver and "standby" mode. They are aware that people are upset on this issue, but they seem not to care.

    Here is a simple solution to the problem. I've used it since 10/09/10 and it works perfectly.

    Restore the functionality of screen saver / display after MagicJack diverted these features...

    Click on the Start button in Windows 7

    type cmd in the search box

    Right click on cmd and run as administrator if you are not running as an administrator it will not work!

    type: powercfg /requestsoverride PROCESS magicJack.exe DISPLAY

    Make sure that you type the capitol letters and lowercase no look of magic make 'J' ack it's capitol as well!

    Press enter

    Now unplug your magicjack

    Restart your computer and let the unplugged MagicJack

    Once the computer starts together your screensaver for a minute then let it sit for a minute activate screen saver...

    Now plug your magic let sit for one minute Alto screen saver is now active!

    If you want to activate the sleep as well, follow the same instructions as above, but simply type this line instead.

    type: powercfg /requestsoverride PROCESS magicJack.exe DISPLAY SYSTEM

    If you follow these instructions, your sleep/screen mode will work as before.
