Terminal Server and screen savers

We have terminal server with about 30 people remoting in from different networks.  Starting last Friday- some but not all of the users- had their screen saver activated with the 10 minute idle time and password lock out.  We had set the local policy to disable the screensaver, time and password requirement.  The policy still looks good.  Only some- maybe 1/2?- of the users are affected.  Anyone have ideas for what caused this and how to prevent it?

This info is helpful however, this problem came up last week on just some of the people and it wasn't a problem before.  I am not sure why it changed on some but not others.
