    I have a new iMac with a big screen. I went to System Preferences / Energy Saver and set the "display sleep" to 10 minutes, thinking that the screen saver or blank screen would kick in at that time. But it never does, the screen stays on continuously. What am I doing wrong?

    Press these keys simultaneously:

    Shift + Control + Eject

    Does the screen turn off and then come right back on?
