Experts,
This is a strange request I was assigned, I think it's impossible but I thought I would ask all of you.

Obviously it's possible to have a laptop with a screen saver lockout ruled by gpo for a certain amount of time, but is there anyway possible to have the screen saver lockout become activated to a different time period when the laptop is unplugged (on battery)?

So, say the lockout would be 20 minutes normally, then when it's unplugged/on battery the screensaver would kick in after say 10 minutes.
