  1. I can go to my Display Control Panel and select the screen saver option and use preview and settings to see my screen saver function. However, the screen saver does not automatically kick in after the 10 minutes I specified in the "wait" parameter. I have uninstalled and re-installed my screen saver. No luck. I have registry settings like the following one.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatibility\ScreenSaverActive.exe

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Session
    Manager\AppCompatibility\ScreenSaverActive.exe

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet\Control\Session
    Manager\AppCompatibility\ScreenSaverActive.exe

    I have unloaded everything and run just W2K by itself.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks.
