Screensaver wait time registry entry
Posted on 2002-04-08
I am trying to set a policy which will make all domain users screensaver to a standard.
I have written a custom adm file, which is still a bit dirty but basically works (below).
My problem lies in that a change to the registry entry HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaveTimeOut doesn't actually change the Wait time.
I think that this is the only entry which controls the wait time, and it is the key which changes if you alter the Wait time from the screensaver tab in display properties.
Changing the screensaver path in the registry does work though.
This is just for NT/ 2k users.
Please help....I'm stuck
