Screen Saver Options
I'm in Windows 8 Pro x64 this morning, and am going to test it out and see.

To make sure we're on the same page, I've modified my settings as shown above.

I usually don't run a screen saver at all, nor do I modify the power settings to turn anything off (including the monitor). If I want things off, I'll power them off myself!

So, the first picture shows what I have changed the screen saver settings to. This should be similar to what you said you use (Photo option, and 3 minutes of no activity).

I have also set my power options to turn off the display after 5 minutes (2nd picture).

Finally, you mention an option of screen saver called "Photo Gallery". The third picture lists all the options I you can see, I don't see "Photo Gallery" listed. Is this some kind of add-on that you have done?

I'll post the results in a new post after this test is complete, as its going to take a few minutes to see if it works!
