How can I extend the locking time on my pc?  I work in the I.T. Dept. and have to run jobs that take longer than 10 minutes.  When my pc locks it causes the jobs to crash.  I tried to do it myself but the area is grayed out so I am not able to change it.

I'm on a domai and I think an old policy is in effect for my old PC but not the new PCs.  Any ideas?

         Hi wball1217
            *Start>Run>gpedit.msc
            *Locate Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Account Policies>Account Lockout Policy
            *In right pane, change Account Lockout Time by double-clicking, to a time you wish (10 hours maybe)
            *If the Account Lockout Time is greyed out, then change the first policy in right pane (Account Lockout Treshold) to 5 or 10 as you wish. Then Account Lockout Policy will be enabled
            *You may have to restart computer to changes take effect, if gpupdate /force does not work.

They are all greyed out.  

But the problem is with the Windows Screen Saved, I cannot change that time.

           Hi wball1217
                 That means your computer is effected by domain policy, which you wouldnt change clientside. You have to ask to domain admin for priviledges.

       Hi wball1217
             I misunderstood the condition I think (I remembered this one when a similar one is asked)

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Display.  If you are in an AD environment, you'll need to configure the appropriate domain or OU linked group policy using the Group Policy Management Console. Or for local PC, you can modify the local server's policy by clicking Start>Run then type gpedit.msc. If you cant modify the setting, that means you need domain admin credidentals.
