Power Troubleshooter does not see Screen Saver as Disabled..

I was running the "Improve Power Usage" utility from the Control Panel - Troubleshooting section. If you have a Screen Saver enabled, the troubleshooter will turn it off, but not recognize it has done so. The utility still shows the problem is not fixed.

It might be a glitch, but it seems something on the system is not being reset correctly for the troubleshooter to be able to recognize the Screen Saver is not enabled...

Any ideas as to what might be happening? If you run the troubleshooter, it may reset some of your power settings unless you select Advanced and uncheck the automatic repair.
