    On my Windows 10 Home PC, screensaver and power options screen option don't work after enabling them.
    Any suggestions to get either to work?

    Yes, I and re-booted again, and still doesn't work.
    I also did a Windows update, rebooted, and doesn't work.
    The Power Option Hibernate takes about a minute to wake up, so don't like that.

    they were not the only suggestions in that referenced thread. anyway, you can try a system restore to a restore point to before it was working.

    Hi all
    I tried all the suggestions from many links including:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...oot-in-windows
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...e-afa05d026e05
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...b4cc4ed?page=2
    https://windowsreport.com/screen-sav...ersonalization.
    https://www.thewindowsclub.com/scree...in-windows-10/
    ... except clean boot, which sounds risky and hard to un-do.
    I've also done virus scan, disk scan etc.
    I then gave up, and tried googling on other problem (ie my battery only lasts 1 hour), and found a link which said if I didn't need BlueTooth to disable it via Settings / Network-Internet / Airplane-mode / turn off blue-tooth.
    I tried it, and lo and behold... per chance, both the ScreenSaver and Screen part of Power Options both work fine now.

    I tried all these options and more, and gave up.
    But... per chance, I was trying to fix an unrelated battery problem, and it was suggested I disable blue-tooth.
    I tried it, and both the ScreenSaver and Screen part of Power Options both work fine now.
