Screensaver not working

Running windows 10 home 64-bit. Just upgraded this morning. All drivers updated from the manufacturers websites. I cannot get my screensaver to come on. It does work with the "preview" button but does not come on itself after waiting for it.  Also the display shut off functionality does not work as well. I thought if I got the screen to shut off with a certain time I could avoid needing a screensaver while waiting for a fix. Since neither working I hope someone may know something to help.

Did you get this working? Same problem (no screensaver or power functionality)... annoying!

I had a Razor Orb weaver hooked to my system via USB. I disconnected the unit and "Viola" screen saver and power options are back! I hooked it back in to make sure that was the problem and sure enough the screen saver stopped. I looked in the settings for the unit and there was no way to turn it off!! I HAD to disconnect it.
