    Same here. Fresh install, changing everything to never, save, sometimes the next day default settings are restored. Very annoying.

    Windows 7 - 64 bit

    Hey folks, my screen has been going black as well...and sometimes coming back on. Yes, it's very frustrating, especially when your in the middle of something important or just watching a movie. Davehc's suggestion is working for me. I changed the Screen Saver to Bubbles, as I once had before, then there's an option to select the minutes before the Screen Saver is activated. I selected 300 mins. You can go higher if you like. Thanks again Dave!
