    Most likely you have a MS Laser Mouse, which from what I understand
    periodically talks to the computer cause the screensaver to never kick in.
    Stupid solution but unplugging the mouse will allow the screensaver to start.

    Take care,

    I have the same problem with RC1.
    This problem did not occur with Build 5384.

    You can manually start the screen saver, and add a shortcut to the Quick
    Launch bar for convinience. The screen savers are located in:


    click "Type" to sort the files alphabetically by type, and scroll down to
    Screen Saver. All the names are clear, except
    logon is the Windows Vista flag logo,
    scrnsave is a blank screen,
    ssBranded is Windows Energy

    drag the file to the Quick Launch bar to add a shortcut there, and just
    click it to activate the screen saver

  6. You can also just right click on the file and choose Place on Quick Launch.
    That is new to Vista.
