No Server Lock

I don't want my server to lock under any circumstance.  Is there a way to set this up?  I'm tired of walking away for five minutes and having to re-login when I get back.  I don't ever want the server to lock by itself.

    If this is a domain policy, you will have to edit the GPO causing this Screen saver setting.  Here is how:

    Hope the server is in a secured room to keep just anyone from accessing the server.  Especially if you use an admin account to access the server.
