Terminal Server Screensaver Group Policy Exception

I have 2 screensaver policies applied to 2 different User Groups.  The first policy is a 15min/No lock and second is 5min/Lock.  The problem is that I have users from each group logging into a Win2003 Terminal Server and users that should not have the lock are having the lock applied.  Example - Time Clock terminal session via Remote Desktop should have 15min/No Lock, but the session is locking after 5 minutes.  Is there a way to put in an exception for our Terminal Server to ignore the Screensaver policies using the GPMC?  I was also curious if Terminal Server screensaver policies are not session specific but truly computer based so only 1 screensaver policy will affect all users with active sessions?

you can apple a policy to the terminal server, and apply the loopback on the policy, this will apply a policy to a user based on the machine to which they login. Instructions below.

Aside from the loopback policies you need to configure The Terminal Server Configuration Connections as this overrides ALL settings, including GPOs.

-open your run command line
-type in tscc.msc and press enter
-Go to the Sessions tab and you can override the settings here if they are enabled.
