I have a new dell pc that came with vista home premium pre-installed. The
machine will not go to screen saver no matter what I try. Does anyone have
any suggestions?

Hi Daddyman,

See:

The screen saver does not work when you use a Microsoft wireless pointing device:

I have no wireless anything. I use a Creative optical mouse. I've gone
through the Control Panel controls a number of times, even reset and
restarted. Still no screensaver.

Why not post this in the Vista general group? It's not a setup question.
