    Also, no matter how long I leave my system untouched, the screensaver never starts. Here are those settings:

    Any suggestions? I am under the assumption that resolving one issue would resolve both.

    Here is the output of powercfg /lastwake, powercfg /requests, and powercfg /waketimers

    The listed waketimer presumably is required by Acronis backup as I have a backup scheduled at 4am daily.

    Welcome aboard. :)

    Check which device/devices are causing the computer wake up constantly: Devices - See Devices that are able to Wake Up the Computer

    Then prevent it from doing so: Devices - Allow or Prevent to Wake Up Computer

    Let us know the result.
