I have a new installation of windows 7 (about a month)


i have my screensaver set to come on after 3 mins, and my monitor set to power off after 10 mins,


every once in awhile (3-5 days) the screensaver will stop coming on, but the monitor will still power off after the 10 mins,


when this happens i go into the control panel / screensaver settings, and they have not changed at all,


to fix the issue i select a different screensaver, click apply, then select the other screensaver that i want, and click apply,


this fixes the problem for again about 5 days,


anybody else have this issue?


i had the same problem on a different computer in the past running vista
