My computer is only a week old and at not time since I have had it can I get
the screen save to activate on its own at the time set. I can change it and
run the preview just not get it to run on its own.

I have made sure I have service pack 2 and that outlook express does not
check for new mail like some of the help files suggest and its made no
difference so any idears would be great

Is this a default screen saver, or one you installed?
You've checked Power Options?
