    I have set my screensaver to my iPhoto library, but for some reason when my screensaver is supposed to turn on my screensaver goes black and nothing happens. When I test the screensaver it works, but when its actually supposed to happen it doesn't!

    Any suggestions?

    Sure you don't have Energy Saver set to sleep the screen at the same period of time (or shorter) than your screen saver? This will result in the behavior you're describing.

    Where can I check the sleep time and change it?

    I am reckoning the same.

    And this thread reminds me what a great community MR is in that a ‘newbie’ can post a question and not get laughed at. :D

    Reminds me of the time I asked why the cup holder in my Mac kept closing every time I turned my computer off! :p

    See, the world can be nice to one-another :)

    I think that if you posted that here, you would definitely get laughed at. In fact, I can guarantee it :)
