Where is the setting on group policy that I can change screen saver so that I will be able to set a timer for it? If there is an article from Microsoft for this, it would be great.

Flyingsky:

I saw this article but it does not talk about how to set a timer for the screen saver. The screen saver on my network's laptops pop up too often. I want to set the group policy so laptops have to wait longer before they can have screen saver. Thanks

It's in the User Configuration settings-->Administrative Templates-->Control Panel/Display-->Screen Saver timeout-->Seconds.

Since it's a User specific setting, you may want to create multiple GPO for different time-out as in our enviornment, some PC do not want screen saver enable, some wants 1 hours and other wants 30 minutes. Also GPO block inheritance may need to be used depending on how you layout the OUs in AD.
