Disable autolocking for windows 2000

Hi All,

I have an employee whose computer keeps locking after its been left idle for a certain period of time.

He wants it disabled.  There are no local security polices set up on his machine, so it hasnt' been activated from there.

Can anybody help??

Thanks a mil,

Jane

When you put a password on the Screen Saver in Windows NT/2000/XP/2003, when the screen saver kicks in, it also locks the computer.

I think there may be a group policy on the server for everybody but cannot find where it is??!!  It doesn't seem to be under security???  Can you help?

Also where do I disable the screen saver?  I do not have a screen saver tab on my display properties.. although I'm using XP.

Thanks again for your comments,


Jane.
