Windows Security Screen lock

I manage a site that does not want the computer to lock after being idle for a certain amount of time.  I explained to them it is a security feature, but they insist on wanting it off.  Is this a policy change?  I tried turning off the screensaver, but it still is locking after 5 minutes.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is governed by the group policy setting Password protect the screen saver under the node User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Display.

Will this require a reboot to take affect?  I did it to mine and it still went to the computer locked message.
Run gpupdate /force to force the policy change to take effect immediately.

I did that and walked away from the computer.  Came back and still my computer went to the screensaver locked, saying only the administrator or the user could unlock the computer.
Perhaps there is another policy superseding the one that you set.

If you haven't already done so, install the Group Policy Management Console and use the Group Policy Results wizard to determine exactly which settings are being applied to your workstation.

How can I disable the screen saver lock for just a couple computers (not users)?
