    Last night I installed Bootcamp on my i5 17" IMac and everything works except the screensaver and power management stuff won't kick on. For reference, here is what I did so far...

    Setup Bootcamp Partition
    installed windows 7 64 to that partition
    used external display because of the video issues to finish the install
    let windows update download/install all drivers/patches (which fixed the display issue)
    installed bootcamp drivers from osx dvd
    uninstalled bluetooth drivers so my apple wireless keyboard would work again.

    I know that Bootcamp isn't supported for Windows 7 yet but does anyone know what is causing this or perhaps a workaround until official windows 7 drivers are available?

    I'm having the same issue - though when I run the Windows Partition via Parallels the screen saver does run.

    Yeah, I assume it is some driver error and since Apple is dragging their feet on the Win7 support, I suppose I just have to stay in osx anytime I am going to be away from my computer for an extended amount of time. :(
