    Interesting. Fast Startup seems to be responsible for a few problems.

    Yes, the trick that was first mention did not work. I turned off the fast startup, now wait to see if it works.

    Crazy 'fix'


    My husband, who was an Advisory Programmer with IBM, looked into another forum which
    addressed this problem specifically. The consensus was that the Logitech devices connected
    to the USB ports were the culprits. One 'solution' which worked was to disable the HID in the
    Device Manager of the Control Panel. Rather than do that, we disconnected the Logitech Mouse
    and the Logitech Microphone (used for Skype) before booting up. Voila, the delay was not
    reset to zero and the screensaver operated normally. We reconnected the Logitech devices
    with no ill effect. Whether this is a problem unique to Logitech has not been determined.
    Whether Microsoft will look into this is probably very remote......

    I've got a Logitech HID mouse and I don't have the reset problem. My wife's comp has a Logitech mouse and keyboard and she doesn't have the problem, either.

    So, the Logitech theory doesn't look well founded, at least in my household.

    In my opinion Microsoft has and will continue to fix issues like these ,one of the many reasons win10 insider program is still going on ,and will for many months more ,, your statement has no merit

    I don't have a Logitech mouse either. For ALL readers, the fix is the fast startup. I did this fix and going on 2 days now with no more problems with the screen saver.

    This prevents the screensaver from activating. I set the time and press apply and then works all day until
    I sign off at night and re-boot (power up) in the morning. I did not have this problem with Windows 7.
    Interesting that you mentioned this as I distinctly remember setting the time on the screen saver and I noticed that it wasn't working and reset it yesterday. After viewing this post I re-checked and my screen saver value has been reset to 1 as well but I know that my screen saver was working. I did a bit of investigation and I think that Windows may be reporting it incorrectly on screen. Here's what I found that you can check out on your PC.....

    Invoke he registry editor (RegEdit.EXE) and you click on the topmost "Computer" entry
    Select Edit from the menu bar, press Find and then enter ScreenSaveTimeOut as the search screen.
    Over in the right panel you'll see the value entry and on mine the Data is set to 600 which is 10 minutes.
    If the value is not what you expect it to be, you can click on the value entry and change the Value Data to some other, more appropriate value. Not that you should continue to search the registry as on my Windows 10 PC, 600 for the value was found twice. In my case the Control Panel value shows 1 minute however my registry was telling me 10, not 1.
