re:[SLE] Gnome2 problems wit screensaver

An odd thing is happening in Gnome2(8.1). The screensaver daemon, or
whatever it is that has to be started for the screensaver to run doesn't
start when i log in to gnome. Even if I start the daemon, logout and
save the current session, when i log back it isn't running.
I think it maybe because i ran gnomecc, to switch to metacity, and went
in to the screensaver portion, not realizing that i could do it another
way. I figured out that if i run gnomecc now, go into desktop >
screensaver, exit that and then configure the screensaver through
gnome2(the wrench screwdriver icon(desktop preferences)), it has to
restart the daemon.
Is there a script that i have to add something like start screensaverd?
I searched the .gnome2 folder in my home directory, and i think it
should go in session, but I'm not sure if that's the right place and
what the syntax is.
Any help would be appreciated. i realize that screensavers aren't truly
necessary with todays monitors, but I'd like to figure out how to fix it
