Hi rkfjr! If this started a week ago, my suggestion is always try the least evasive fix first.
That would be to restore to a earlier time. I'm not a fan of screen savors!;)
Here's a good read about screen savors from HTG!

rkfjr … though i will not be able to assist … you might wish to elaborate a bit more about your work-space environment:
  1. how old is your computer / monitor …
  2. what was the factory original os …
  3. how long ago did you install win-10
  4. is your computer desktop or laptop …
  5. when did you first notice the issue …
  6. had there been recent win-10 update around that same time …
  7. had you installed any other hardware/software around that same time …
  8. does everything in your monitor become b&w or just screen-saver …
  9. did you try disabling the screen-saver or changing to different theme (3d text)
to me, rkfjr, sounds like there's some correlation between your chosen screen-saver being initiated after ten minutes … and, based on the energy-saver mode on laptop (preserves battery charge) … the energy-saver mode could change some settings accordingly. keep in mind, if the source is isolated to your energy-saver mode … this phenomena could have emanated from a win-10 install or update.

lastly, rkfjr, … remember to take screen-caps before you change any settings … you might consider creating system-restore point as well.

holdum: Good post here. However you forgot one thing... When you run a fish aquarium screensaver, this uses way less electricity than an actual aquarium...And you don't have to Clean out the fish tank! ha-ha!! :rofl:
