    Screen Saver Now Working Because... But Why?


    Win 10, latest build

    Okay so my screen saver suddenly stopped kicking in. Neither would my monitor shut off according to the power plan. I searched Google (aka Skynet) and found a cr*p load of "solutions." None of them worked.

    One day I disconnected my Retro Power Sega Genesis game pad and then, suddenly, to my surprise, my screen saver started!

    But, being a curious sort, why did disconnecting this particular game pad initiate the timer countdown? I've had Xbox One and PS4 controllers always connected via USB and never encountered a screen saver failure.

    Is there any way I can keep my controller plugged in?

    I do have Nvidia Shadow Play, but in settings, I keep it switched off, if this helps.

    Thank you.

    :)
