  1. Control panel screensaver works intermittently


    I've had this problem for at least a year and I've had enough of it. It will work for maybe a day or 2 and then stop and I'll have to go and toggle the settings (move the timer from my default 2 minutes to 3 minutes and then back to 2 minutes, hit apply and okay) and then it'll work for another couple days and then stop again. Also will work again if I restart but same thing: it will work for a couple days and then stop again.
