To improve security ect I want to set a polisy to automatically lock computers in my domain after x min. I've seen this in other networks but I can't find it in group policy. Even if i have to force screen savers then require the password when comming out of the sreen saver but i can't even find that. What am i doing wrong?

start--->run--->mmc--->file---->Add/Remove Snap in
Click Add--->Select Group Policy Object Editor--->Click Add--->Then Browse--->then Select Default Domain Policy
Click OK---> Then Finish---> Then Close----Then OK
 
then click on user configuration-->administrative templates-->controll panel-->Display

enable screen saver
enable password protect
enable screensaver timeout and set the timeout.

save the console as default_domain_policy
then gpupdate /force on the server and on the workstations...or just wait it will apply itself eventually.
