Is anyone else experiencing a non functioning screen saver in W10?

Is it not starting, or is there another issue with it?

Doesn't start. Though it works from the command line. Windows 10 Pro ver 1903.

Hi Jon,

Unfortunately this did not work. Either with pictures or bubbles. I have attached my ststem specs along with DF setup. Hopefully this helps. Thank you for looking into this. I'll be happy to help if other betas require testing. Tom

Thanks Tom! If you exit DisplayFusion, does the screen saver start after the idle time?

Hello Keith,
I solved my problem and wanted to share the fix. My mouse would flash every 10 seconds. This reset the idle counter and the screen saver never kicked in.

I narrowed it down to a program that installs with ASUS audio drivers, as part of the ASUS Realtek driver package. ASUS includes the Nahimic suite. Once I disabled the Nahimic.exe file in Task Manager the audio output stopped but the screen saver started working.

The fix was to uninstall the ASUS Realtek suite of programs and re-install the Realtek Audio Drivers obtained directly from Realtek. These drivers do not include Nahimic.

Again, thank you for you responsiveness to my issue and hopefully this may help someone else.
