Screensaver invokes the login prompt

Posted on 2007-08-09

I know i am missing something really stupid here but i cannot remember how i set up the login password to ask to re log in after the screensaver runs... I thought it was done in gpedit, but i am unable to find the setting.

Basically the setting overides the use controls for the password and screensaver time on a desktop... but i need to set this up on some other machines, and cannot find it! lol

Any help would be greatly appriecated.

    If you did'nt set it through Local Policies, run "gpresult /v > gp.log" on client to find out which policy enables this setting.
