Is there a way to apply a setting through GPO to implement screen saver time outs? My current site has no auto screen saver and I don't want to have to move to each computer to do this. Thanks!

You can but it is a user setting not a computer setting, more information here

If you wanted it to apply to machines you could enable loopback processing but generally the user setting is what most people will use to configure it.

Thanks

You can also use WMI filters to block the policy on certain machines.
