Please let us know what you installed. There is nothing to install for screensave to work.

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.
