    Screen Saver not working and constant refreshing

    I had same problem with screen saver not working and also constant refreshing that i could not rename any files
    The solution that worked for me seems a blue tooth application was running after i shut it down all starting working

    I can't set my screen saver past 3 minutes. It works fine at 3 minutes but anything more it doesn't work.

    (I think the "Add Console Lock" was what did the trick but I also did....)

    Local Group Policy - Reset to Default
    I can't find "add console lock". I don't see it in Power Options or Screen Saver.

    I cannot find HID on my computer!

    So after more reading in this thread, Thank You, I decided to disable all the "HID - compliant*" devices under Human Interface Devices. And what do you know, the screensaver now works.

    My next step will be to go through all the disabled devices and try and track down what they are related too. I have an X360 controller, keyboard, mouse and joystick currently connected and want to find out which "HID" device was causing the issue.

    The issue might not be vendor specific, but might be Microsoft based driver related for a certain input. I'm guessing there might be an issue with the driver constantly keeping the comms open with the device, hence not allowing power savings or the SS to work.

    I'll update this as I figure out what the culprit might be.
