I need to find a way in the registry to disable the default time period to lock the desktop of the server after inactivity. We are running terminal services on these servers and need to change the time or turn off the desktop autlock feature.

A reg fix is the best so I can just import it onto all the servers. The question is is a global for all terminal server users or just a per user fix.
