    For no known reason my screen saver does not work any longer.
    Whatever I do to change the setting and the 'power' settings too it simply will not work.
    I have tried Kellys-Korner tip 51 ad there seems no way to retain the 'enable' 1 - tried it many times.
    Any bright ideas anyone?

    1. Save the file to your desktop with the name Disable Screen Saver.reg.
