Screensaver? What screensaver?

On my new Win7 computer the screensaver is set to come on after 10 minutes, and Power Management is set to turn off the display after 15 minutes. I go away, come back in 2 hours, the desktop is still happily glowing. Gimme a break, how can something as basic as this not work?

But then I also just noticed while copying files from one of my XP computers to another, the little floating progress dialog says "Copying files from [source] to ... " -- oops, can't see the destination because it's covered up by the progress bar, leaving just the tops of the taller characters showing as little dots. This is in an OS that's been around for like 10 years.

I just have to shake my head and sigh.
