    Yes. My screen does lock when the display goes to sleep. It also locks when the system screensaver decides to work on rare occasions. My problem is only with the system screensaver.

    This gets more curious every day.

    Hi all, i've the same problem on my macbook pro 2008 since i've update to Moutain Lion.

    Both the screensaver and monitor sleet do not start. I've noticed that if i open system settings and change some values in screensaver and energy saver too, some time it work again since i reboot.

    Hey Guys if its any consolation My Developer Copy 10.8.3 does not have any of these issues it should be released in week or so hope this helps..

    Good to hear.... Did you have the problem with 10.8.2? Not sure if everyone with 10.8.2  has this problem, or just certain configurations.



  • gungholady Level 1 (0 points)

    I certainly hope that 10.8.3 does solve the problem. My family forgets to use the hot corners so a lot of the time the screensaver is not on. I should not be necessary to use hot corners or restart in order for the screensaver to work.

    Thanks for that very hopeful input, I too would like to know if you actually had the problem with 10.8.2.

  • mrgadge Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes I had all the same issues listed here and in my previous post listed below mine had been working with the adjustments I made for 3 + months now.



    To all I tried the fix above logged in to another user  that I allready had made a while back changed the settings in that user account and logged out opened the other user and after one min the screensaver started working again and has been working for the last 5 hrs. So I tried a restart logged in and it is still working..the only other change I made was in Energy Saver preferences was display sleep from never to 15 min.. ALL IS WELL hope this helps Jim P

    Sorry mrgadge, should have checked through the older posts first.


    Hopefully, the update will be an end to it.

    I've not read all the other posts, but here's what's 'working" for me.  In the screen saver sysytem prefs, there's a Hot Corners button in the lower right corner.  I set Start Screensaver for two corners and so when I walk away from my MacMini for awhile, I have to remember to push mousie to one of these corners.

  • gungholady Level 1 (0 points)

    That is the only thing that is working for me too. But my family forgets to use the Hot Corners. I hope the soon coming update fixes the problem.

    Interesting that since I quit using Outlook for email late yesterday the screensaver has been activating as it should. I don't know why it made a difference as I had been using Outlook all along from the day I got my mini mac.

  • corvairkid Level 1 (15 points)

    It's very puzzling. I've had the screensaver problem while using both Mail and Outlook. Some are having problems with the screensaver and the display sleep. My problem is only with the screensaver.

    Yes, I hope 10.8.3 fixes this too.

  • gungholady Level 1 (0 points)

    I guess I spoke too soon. It stopped working again. Come on update.

  • James Coley Level 2 (385 points)

    I cannot even get a Hot Corner to engage a Screensaver.  Any ideas?
