Windows 10: Screensaver does not come on

    Screen saver and power settings (monitor shutoff and sleep) do not work. The screen saver preview does work. It's as though some device e.g. wireless mouse or keyboard is keeping it awake. I have disconnected both, with no success. These functions worked perfectly on Windows 8.1 prior to upgrade to Windows 10. Is there some app or program peculiar to 10 that is doing this?

    Is this issue being addressed in the upcoming service update?

    I've seen that thread but still no real solution after 10+ pages

    I just installed the latest cumulative update, KB3081438. Apparently, it did not address the screen saver problem. It's probably not very high on Microsoft's priority list with all the other problems being reported.

    Ditto.

    For those of you who did an extensive search on this problem: does it tend to happen when using a certain screen saver? For example, I'm using a folder of pics on my One Drive as Photo Gallery. It just occurred to me this might be the issue, but I wanted to see if I had that in common with others who are having the same problem.

    I rue the day I upgraded from 8.1.

    It happens with all screen savers. I use a photo slideshow from Picasa.
