    Your settings possibly need some tweeking. Remember that you have controls in
    Control Panel-> Power Options->Power Options Properties
    Control Panel-> System->Properties->Advanced
    Control Panel->Administrative Tools ->Computer Management
    Control Panel->Display ->Display Properties->Screen Saver
    Control Panel->Display-Monitor Power
    among others
