Server 2008 r2 screensaver closes itself


Odd behaviour,

All screen savers work fine on the workstation except TBS 2.0. The screen will flash up black for less than a second, and then it will return back to the desktop.

It's as if the screensaver launching resets the 'idle' timeout on windows.

Is there some logging I can turn on in TBS 2.0 to find out what's causing it to be dismissed/closed?

Edit: I should also say, when using "preview" mode the screen saver works fine.

I can confirm that the screensaver in versions 2.0 through 3.1 does not work on Windows Server 2008 R2.

When the workstation is locked and the timeout for the screensaver runs out only a brief black screen shows up and then the lock screen is shown again. E.g. the team build screen is trying to start but closes a second after.

I debugged the application but failed to find the issue. Because of this issue we are stuck on TBS 1.0.
