I know this is not a MAJOR problem, but I was just curious;

I have a laptop HP Pavillion dv9310us with Vista Home Premium.
I set the screen saver to 1 min and nothing happens. Is something set to
block my screen saver from happening or is there a special setting with
Vista to unblock my screen saver?

Thank You very much,
Michael

Actually its not that screensaver does not work on Vista, but the operating system is detected there is a activity going on when you using the wireless keyboard and mouse (you are using wireless one too, right :D )

So, the updates that I asked you install just now is the patch to overcome this issue. And thats how it was working now :D

Powersave mode possibly in the notebook BIOS?

The HID service is running by default, even if you have no wireless/infrared devices. This makes Vista/Screensaver think that there is still activity.
The fix is good enough, but, if you are a dedicated customiser, you can go into the Services.msc and disable it. The result is the same.

I disabled the HID service and my screen still just goes black instead of going to the screen saver.

loserOlimbs,
How do I check power save mode in the notebooks BIOS?
