  1. Windows 10 Screen Saver not starting (and 1 monitor died)


    Hi, I noticed in the last few days that my screen saver is not coming on despite having the settings at 5 minutes of non activity. Could this be because I've been downloading something in the background all this time?

    :)

  3. Screen saver starting automatically after 1 minute of inactivity

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand it can be frustrating when the settings of Windows are not working the way they are supposed to.



    1. Which build version of Windows 10 you are using currently?
    2. What is the exact model of the PC?


    Refer the article to know
    Which Windows operating system am I running?




    I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps.



    Method 1:



    Run the power troubleshooter. Follow the steps mentioned below to run the troubleshooter.



    1. Go to Settings >
      Update & security > Troubleshoot.
    2. Under Find and fix problems look for
      Power.
    3. Click on it and select
      Run the troubleshooter
      .
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions.


    Method 2:



    Change the screen saver time and check.



    1. Go to Settings >
      Personalization > Lock screen.
    2. Now click on Screen saver settings.
    3. On the screen saver window change the
      wait time as per your choice.
    4. Click on Apply and
      OK.


    Hope it helps.
