So what ayou are saying is that after going to DISPLAY PROPERTIES/SCREEN SAVER and changing your screen to start after 10 minutes of inactivity and applying the new changes it will randomly at one point change the 10 minute value to 1 minute when you go back into the SCREEN SAVER menu option.

Right after applying your new changes to 10 minutes and before it changes back to 1 minute if you go back to the SCREEN SAVER menu option is the value still at 10 minutes.

Are you sure it is not your the computer SCREEN (display) that as a built-in timer for going into screen saver mode.

Are you using one of the default screen saver mode of windows or are you using one that you downloaded or that came with another program.
