    Hi all,

    My late '08 MBP (10.6.2 OSX) seems to be having issues with the screensaver not coming on. I have the screen saver set to come on in 5 minutes (set in preferences) and the display to turn off after 10 yet when I left the room and came back 30 minutes later, the screen was where I left it.

    I double checked the settings and tested it out again...no screen saver. If I throw my mouse in one of the hot spots, it will activate the screen saver yet the display won't turn off after 15 minutes.

    Anything I've missed or should try?

    Are you using a 3rd party screensaver? I'm having several issues with Screentime based screensavers.

    No, I'm using just the screensavers that come with OSX. I've tried using the iTunes artwork, the word of the day and others...all have the same result: not starting on their own.
