My screen saver won't stay on

Specs: Win XP Home SP2, P4 768MB Ram

I can't seem to keep my screen saver on. Everything is set correctly and it will go on but then at random it will stop. It is keeping my monitor from going into sleep and I don't know how to stop it. In the few years that I have had the computer, this has never happened to me before. I just stated noticing it after I re-aranged my office and my computer sits in a different place. Any suggestions???

viper2843, SWAG, maybe during the change of location, you encountered a difference in the background magnetic flux environment. Sounds crazy I know, but... A screensaver gets triggered by a flag on your machine which monitors activity and it's purposely set to detect even the slightest thing and get ready for action. Sounds to me like yours is detecting some sort of activity, there or not. If it were me, think I'd delete the screensaver and reinstall and see if it works better???
