Running AD network, all users are domain users group, I want to prohibit users from unchecking the "on resume, password protect". I didn't see in group policy or I missed it.  Is there a easy way to implement this. Thanks.

Require a password on the screensaver (or in your case, dont require it)

User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\
Desktop]
Value Name: ScreenSaverIsSecure
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = disables password, 1 = requires it.)

You can do this in Group Policy by directing yourself here:

In GPO go to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Control Panel - Display
Double click Hide Screen Saver Tab and click ENABLE

Now the screen saver tab will be gone from their display settings
That way they have no access to disable the "On resume, password protect" feature
