Password Protected Screen Savers NOT Protecting?
Posted on 2001-06-12
Have 21 new Dell GX150's preinstalled with Windows 2000 SR1.
All are connected to a Novell NETWARE 5 network using Novell's Client 32 v4.8 for NT/2000.
Users are reporting that password protected screen savers are NOT always demanding
a password when interrupted.
The selection of screen saver seems to have little or no bearing on the situation. Some
users (myself included) have never observed this problem, others found it consistant for
some time until they
1) Rebooted multiple times
2) Installed a 3rd-party ScreenSaver
Still others don't see anything working, their default Windows Screen Saver refuses to
honor the Password Protected checkbox.
