How to set the screen saver timeout when connected to AD and set it to a different timeout when not connected
Posted on 2005-03-09
We are running a windows 2000 server, all of our computers are windows xp sp2, everone has their own computer and we don't use roaming profiles.
My quesiton is, the users that have laptops are part of our training department. We currently have the screen saver timeout and password protect at 15 mintues using GPO. This is sufficient for our security when they are connected to the network and the users have access to network resources. The laptop users are complaining that when they go on the road to do mini conventions that the screen saver comes on to fast will doing their presentations (they might site on one powerpoint slide talking longer than 15 minutes). I need a solution that sets their timeout to 15 when in the building (connected to AD) and sets their timeout to 1 hour when not in the building (not connected to AD.).
