Windows 10: No Screensaver after 10 update
So you've tried all the suggestions contained within this thread?
By and large, yes, where applicable to my equipment... I've tried everything I can think of, or that which seems logical...
It would appear that so many different approaches have been made, by members trying to outfox the bug... I would sooner wait for Microsoft to come up with a stable answer that will fix the problem once and for all...
That's if they can...
Reading in other locations, it seems as though a SS is not a necessity any more... To be sure though, I find it best (at the moment) to put the equipment to sleep for short or longer breaks...
Will still keep my eye on this thread, for any positive suggestions...
Thanks for your interest...
No Screen saver after 10 update
I think this problem is more complex than it appears, A number of users appear to have resolved the problem using suggested registry edit, but not all.
I have looked at my Registry ProfileList and have 4 S-1-5-21 (longstring) entries which are correct so the problem would appear to be somewhere else for me !
No Screensaver after 10 update
I am also following the same approach, without a rational explanation as to why this is happening it is too risky to blindly follow. It's not necessary on modern displays, but it should still work if available.
Heres my scenario...
Cold boot...after startup screensaver will not activate, check screensaver settings, it has defaulted to one minute timeout.
If I change it to 2 minutes click apply and then change it back to 1 minute and click OK, after one minute it will activate.
Thats the only thing I change, so it seems somewhere on the initial start, that the screensavers failing.
Also if you set it for 5 mins and OK it, when it cold starts again its back to one minute, to me the bug is there
Such a simple thing, such frustration !
Add console lock registry edit worked for me! Thanks!
Oops! spoke too soon. This morning when I checked, my screensaver was back to 1 minute.

I think this is the problem for many of us where the console lock fix isn't working. The initial startup of the screensaver is failing.
I have tried everything I can think f, even compared screen for screen the setting of one computer that works to the other computer where it doesn't work and can't find anything.
So there is another thread on this issue and it has people unplugging their joysticks from their computers to fix the issue. Well I tried it and HOLY MOLY it fixed my issue as well. I plugged it back in and ran the Windows test on it and I can't see any movement from it so I don't see why it is allowing it to work. I guess for now I'll just have to plug it in when I play games and unplug it when I'm done. The other thread is located here if anyone wants to look through it. Linky
I saw that too. I am glad you found out what your problem was and the fix for it. I also read about wireless mouse causing issues. In my case, I don't have any joysticks or wireless devices so that isn't my problem.
Emb, just for curious sake if you launch a command prompt with admin privileges and type in powercfg -requests, does it list anything? Make sure all other programs are closed.
What I am trying to accomplish (on a PC) is to have a slideshow play after like 5 or 10 minutes. Then, after 30 minutes, have the monitor go blank. If I press a key, be presented with the Lockscreen.
After watching and playing a little with the...
Someone gave me the link to disable login for startup. But now I can't find it. I figured out how to didable startup but now I need to disable the sign in screen when you timeout. Can anyone help? Thanks. B
I have a decent FAST internet -- but latest update (only a security update) seems to be taking LONGER than the ENTIRE update I did going from 10162 to 10240.
15 mins and STILL only at 6% ??? for a small security update.

after being away from the computer ( on resume )
However before I do that, the screensaver must work
Which it doesn't , and I can't figure out why not?
