Windows 2008 R2 screensaver / lock screen
Posted on 2010-08-27
I have a number of windows 2008 r2 hosts...and I would like to have the screens automatically lock after 10 minutes of inactivity. My first thought was to create a group policy to set the screensaver/timeout/lock option. No problem with this...and the machines pick it up and you even see the proper settings in the screensaver dialog.
The problem that I am having is...the screensaver never kicks on. I have the screensaver exe set to scrnsave.scr and the screensaver timeout is set lower than the display timeout. This happens on ts sessions / and several workstations.
What am I missing?
