How to use Group Policy to remove the "Lock Workstation" timer?
Posted on 2008-10-22
I have seen several situations where people needed to shorten the amount of time it takes for a workstation to lock itself, however I am looking to do the opposite. Several users will share a warehouse computer that is logged in... they do not logout and will just share the one account to use the shipping program. Although they may share the same login, they do not share each other's passwords.
I need to disable to lock timer, or set it to some crazy high time (999 hours, etc).
I have used Group Policy to remove the ability for a user to lock the workstation, but I am unsure if this affects the systems "Auto-Lock" timer.
