I will not use a "screen saver" on my iMac because it does nothing to

I know you have already verified your concerns about energy consumption.
So I will point out a very good reason for a screen saver, security.
Here at home, I don't want my kids monkeying around on my main computer
without permission (that's why they have their own iMac). So I have
screen saver kick in to lock them out (my 10 y.o. son likes to see what
he can get away with). In a more public enviroment, this is still
valid, maybe more so.
