Group Policy

I have a windows 2008 server, which around 20 XP workstations.
I would like to use group policy to ensure that all PCs on the domain do not require the user to enter the password each time the machine is locked through a period of inactivity.
I cannot find the answer anywhere via google, and cannot think of any more ways to word my question.
Thanks in advance

You need to disable Password on Resume feature.  Under Display Properties: Screen Saver, there is a check box that says:  On Resume, Password protect.

From the server side:
Edit the Default Domain Policy>>User Config>>Admin Templates>>Control
Panel>>Display>>Password Protect Screen Saver (and Screen Saver Timeout).

Its explained in this post:

Hope that helps.
