Pushing out ScreenSaver settings based upon Computer Group instead of user

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
I want to be able to set screensaver settings based upon the computer that a user is logging onto instead of just based of the User in group policy.  Some machines we do not want a screensaver at all, others we want screensaver with time limit and password protected.  I am told that group policy only will work for the user, not the computer.  How can I accomplish my needs?
