Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to create a domain policy to lock a persons computer after a certain amount of time.

Try this:
What we did was this: In Group Policy(default domain policy)\User Configuration\Admin Templates\Control Panel/Display we set the following:
Hide screen saver tab=enabled
Password protect the screen saver=enabled
Screen Saver=enabled
Screen Saver Executable name=logon.scr
Screen Saver Timeout=1200
Results:
1. Makes it so the screen saver tab in display properties is hidden so users can’t change it, which they can otherwise until group policy is applied again.
2. Screensavers can’t be turned off
3. All computers have the windows logon screensaver and are password protected
4. Screen savers come on with 15 minutes of inactivity and the computer locks.
We did this mostly for security, and really should be set to come on much earlier, but can’t get management to budge on this. You can specify whatever scr file you want but it MUST reside in the default location on each machine.
