Apply ScreenSaver Group Policy to computer objects in AD?

Is it possible to assign a ScreenSaver Group Policy to a computer object?  For security reasons, we have to enforce a screen saver after 30 minutes of inactivity.  The current policy is applied to the entire domain.  I'd like to setup a separate OU and apply a no-screensaver policy for a select few.  I'd rather it be applied to computers and not users.  Is this possible?

    You can't assign this polic to computer objects because the settings appear under the "user config" section.

    You can move all your users who you want to recieve the policy into an OU and set the policy that way.
