Another thing to consider is the Power Manager supplied by the computer maker. It may be overriding the screensaver. Check its settings.  ... Thinkpads_User

I unpluged the wireless mouse and it worked.
Then I updated the mouse driver and pluged it back again. It works fine now. Thanks for the quick and accurate response.
