Windows 10: Screen Saver Keeps reseting to 1 min. and won't initialize .

    Screen Saver Keeps reseting to 1 min. and won't initialize .

    I set the screen saver to " blank" and " 10 min. " and at some point it re-sets and won't initialize and the time is set to " 1 min. " It never comes on at that point.

    So, I set it again. and again at some point it's back to as if it was not set again.
    At first I thought it was just me not doing something right but it happened to my Mom's computer as well.

    Is there a fix or do we have to wait for an update to solve and fix this problem ?

    Thanks guys.

    Update : It seems to change when I shutdown and then start up in the morning as well as any re-boot.

    This is happening to me too! I set it to 15 minutes and this morning it never came on. I checked and it is at 1 minute.

    I wonder if now days post CRT monitors if a screen saver is still needed to protect the screen any way.
    Maybe it's just not as important as it used to be.

    Any one have any ideas or facts about this ?
