    depending on what apps you have running, something could be "hitting" the system (firefox with gmail open does this to me sometimes) and causing the screen saver to go off.

    "nothing" meaning you've done a full virus and spyware scan, and shut off any unnecessary services?

    Just because you didn't start the program, doesn't mean it's not running. :)
