screensaver stopped working


Granted, this isn't the major kind of problem that others have, but maybe someone can help me out anyway.

Xscreensaver is set to come on after 5 minutes, and randomly change every 5 minutes until 30 minutes when it should go dark.

It worked right after my clean FC2 install, but stopped sometime during the tweaking process. It may have stopped when I set the Power Saver feature. I have disabled that, but still the screensaver never kicks in.

Hmmm! If I let it sit long enough, maybe an hour, the screensaver finally kicks in. It doesn't go black after 30 minutes, but let's leave that alone for a bit. Where is the setting to start the screensaver after 'n' minutes of idleness.
