Hi Rory,

I wonder if the screensaver settings have got corrupted? You can access them from the Windows Live Photo Gallery's File menu but in a rather typically Redmond way just accessing that menu item actually changes your default screensaver to Windows Live Photo Gallery (WLFG) even if you press Cancel to exit the dialog box. Much better, IMHO, to right-click on the Desktop and select "Personalize" (or Properties in older versions of Windows). Under W7 the screensaver choice can be modified from the bottom right of the applet. If you want to use the WLFG screensaver then check all the settings carefully, including the Power Management settings.
