    Can't get the Screensaver to come on or the Screen to turn off

    Anyone have a fix to get the screensaver to work or the very least to get the screen to turn off. I have the screen saver set to 4 minutes of inactivity and The screen to turn off after 10 minutes of inactivity. Neither will work. Please help.

    Same here. After much googling and trying other failed solutions.
    With a freeware standby monitor utility I see time since last user input stuck on zero, but if I kill Fontana background process in task manager then the timer counts start working.
    So Fontana is the cause ?
    I have Cortana off already, desktop pc, no mic, no Microsoft account.
    I have other pcs with screen saver working. Cannot spot any differences.
    Same Logitech devices.
