Answers :

If Preview works but it does not kick in by itself than probably another app is running in the background which is stopping it (it does not detect that it is idle). \015\012It could also me that your mouse is causing the cursor to move slightly or maybe desk vibration - try turning mouse upside down and then set timeout for 1 minute as see if that works.
