I can not find the screen saver setting on 11.10. Can someone please give me the directions for finding this?

There aren't any screen savers in Gnome 3. You can adjust display sleep and screen locking in the power options.

(If you really want pretty pictures when nobody is around to look at them instead of saving your display and power, you could install the xscreensaver: http://www.liberiangeek.net/2011/10/enable-screensavers-in-ubuntu-11-10-oneiric-ocelot/)
