Unhappy Monitor Off Feature/ Screensaver

Need some help, please. New Dell 8400. WinXP. Have loaded all my usual programs. Now I cannot activate the monitor off feature (usually 30 min). I also have a Second Nature screensaver that worked fine on ME. I can start it manually, but not on the auto start after X minutes (usually 10 min). I suspect something is running in the background that prevents them from activating at the specified time. Any tips on a way to isolate the cause. The XP monitor off feature worked fine out of the box. Sure hate to see this new Sony 19" LCD runnning full bore all the time. Thanks in advance.
