    are you saying that if you right click the desktop then select personalize from the menu then selecting screensaver from the bottom right in the little dialog box you can only select 30 or 0 ? (with the up and down arrows) You should be able to highlight that box and type in any number you like are you saying it's greyed out?

    I am having the same exact issue. Screensaver was set to blank at 30 minutes when I first had Win 7 installed and now everything is ghosted out. Can't change type or time on screensaver.

    I checked my policies in gpedit.msc and nothing is set so this shouldn't be happening.
