This just came up a couple of days back. I will quote myself :
Getting the saver to work in console mode is difficult nowadays -
perhaps even impossible.
The only way you can get saver to work in console mode is to add this to
/boot/loader.conf and reboot :
The default console driver under 11.x is vt. If you use sc, your saver
will begin to work, but then X will refuse to start (happens under
10.3/11.0). If you manage to get it to work under 11.1 - good luck !
