    I am having the same problem although it is not on my dell laptop. The screensaver stopped working within the last week. At the same time, my mouse also went so I started using the USB mouse that I have for my laptop. However, the screensaver stopped working PRIOR to my installing this new mouse.

    I have the exact same issue on the exact same machine, Dell Inspiron 1501. I thought this may have had something to do with the ACPI power settings but couldn't find anything tell tale in the BIOS setup. Anyone have any other ideas?
