Blank screen instead of screensaver


When I leave my computer for a while, the screen goes blank instead of the screensaver. The screensaver config doesn't seem to be wrong, to me. Any idea ?
Thanks !

config screensaver

all what i found is :

blank after 10 min
cycle after 10 min
lock screen (enabled) after 20 min

and the display power management (which i think doesn't matter here)
standby after 30 min
suspend after 45 min
off after 60 min
