I started having problems with my screensaver (it wouldn't start), and power saving mode (it also wouldn't start).  I managed to fix that with some help from the forum (  Now I've got everything working again, but I've got a new problem.  Now that the screensaver is working, I've noticed that the colors are off, especially in images with a lot of red in them.  There's clearly a colorspace problem here.  I notice it when I set the finder to show icons as well.  The colors are just washed out.  There's no problem when I view the images in any other application (e.g. Preview, Photoshop, Safari, etc.).  In fact I use the same directory of photos for my desktop picture as I use for the screensaver, and the desktop has the proper colorspace, while the screensaver doesn't.  I've got a late 2012 iMac 27" running 10.8.3, and as far as I can tell this is a new problem for me.  I've also got an older iMac also running 10.8.3, and it doesn't have the problem.  It's definitely a little odd.  My monitor is calibrated and like I said, the colors are correct everywhere but in the screensaver and in the icons.  Any ideas?
