Hello,

These haven't been working recently.
I did get it to work if I'm playing a game (Starfield specifically if that matters).
But when I have Windows on (with nothing running even), it doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I am not sure what you are trying to achieve, your question is not quite clear.

You can turn off your screensaver, if that is what you want

Sorry.

I was referring to:
- "Screen Saver" does not work
- "Turn Screen Off After..." does not work

However, it appears to work now after I updated the video card drivers. I'm assuming that those 2 events are on some sort of timer and somewhere in the recent past, this timer may have been messed up by a driver glitch. Perhaps updating the drivers reset something?

Thanks.

Yes, any issue with your display, like screensaver, you should update your graphics driver.
