    There machines will lock out if you set the screen saver lockout that requires authentication.
    Disable the require password option if you don't want it.

    Mikealcl is correct. Edit the policy and Disable "Password protect the screen saver". The only problem with this is that users who choose to use a password will not be able to. You may try to select "Not configured" and see if that fixes the problem.
