Screen saver doesn't work when logged off
Posted on 2006-11-20
I am running a Windows Server 2003 machine that was started in a test domain and had to be switched over to a production version awhile ago. I believe it was during the conversion that the screen saver stopped working when I logged off, which is most of the time.
Until now I've just been turning off the monitor when I log off, but since I'm going back to do a bunch of reconfigurations, I want to figure out where the problem is. I usually log in as a domain admin, and both that and local admin accounts have the correct screen saver settings (blank screen after five minutes). I believe the old test domain admin account also had the settings configured correctly.
Where would the "welcome screen" screen saver settings be stored?
