Hello everyone,

I'm Trying to implement the following type of Group Policy:

I have 30 pc's on my network and the employee's are complaining that the computer is locking (if left alone) to fast. I want to change the default time and set it to a greater one. Whats the best way to do this?  and how can I use a group policy to get this done?

create an ou in ADCU
creat a policy for this OU
edit the policy and set the following entry
+user config
+admin templates
+control panel
+display
set time out on "screensaver timeout" to a higher level



create a group in the new ou put the appropriate users in it, then go to the group policy windows(not the policy itself) and select properties, go to security and add the group in, then tick the "apply group policy" allow, and you all done.
