I am courious as to why all of a sudden my screen saver will not stay activated. I select one and around 5 minutes later it works and then all of a sudden it goes back to my desktop with the password dialog box on it. I reset the screen saver and it still does this. Can someone enlighten me as to why this is happening?

You can uncheck it unless you use it as a security measure

Do you have any programmes which check the internet for updates, mail etc at regular intervals
