Vaio all in one will not go into sleep mode or show screen saver

When I first got my machine the power options worked and gradually quit working.  Now it will never go into sleep mode or switch to the screen saver.  I have tried numerous times in power options; different settings, etc.  Do I need to download something to make this feature work?  To save my beautiful screen I have to shut down at night and reboot in the morning.

 

My last problem with the script message was solved overnight so I hope someone can jump in here and give me some ideas, like maybe uninstall and the reinstall ?

 

Thank you for your attention to this.

Thanks for the post.

 

Try changing power plan:

Re: Vaio all in one will not go into sleep mode or show screen saver

thanks Tony, tried all of that and it didn't work. today I have a solution. changed my microsoft mouse for a vaio mouse. Instant fix. I can't count the number of hours I worked on this, trying everything. And Sony just has it to where it wants its own mouse apparently.
