How can I get the screensaver to activate and stay on.

My screensaver seems to never activate although it's set to come on in 
20 minutes in Control Center Appearence & Themes > Screensaver.
What I get is a black screen after some timeout (10-15 minutes).

The only way I can get it started at all is to put
the cursor on the top right corner of the screen and
wait approx 10 seconds.  Screensaver will then start but reverts to a 
black screen after the timeout.

Advanced options > Autolock is set to on for Upper right corner.
Require password to stop and Make aware of power management are _not_
