    ?? The screen saver will play until you move the mouse or press a key, then you'll get the login prompt. If you don't do anything the screen saver will start up again.

    i have a password on my computer but now it never plays my screen saver

    After 5 mins it goes right to the password but i want my screen saver to come on . So why does it not play my screen saver and go right to the password ?

    You do know the screen saver does nothing for your system, right?

    Sounds like your display is going to sleep before the screen saver ticks on. You can change the time it takes for the display to sleep under  -> System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Sleep.
