We are running Windows Server 2003 Domain controllers. Our clients are running on XP. I need to configure ScreenSaverGracePeriod value through GPO. The GPO Should set the value of the registry Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon under this Screen saver grace period key should be set as type REG_SZ with value 5.

Please send me an .ADM template with above registry settings. It is little bit urgent.

Thanks in Advance.

There is no need for an adm to be created. Simply uuse a GPO to configure your screen saver timeout.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. This is not for screen saver Timeout. I need to create Screen Saver Grace Period setting which is not available by default. So need to create .adm file. Please provide me .adm template for this.

I certainly don't appreciate your tone.  I do know the concepts.  Take a look at my profile of answers.  But since I ma here to help those wanting to learn, here is your answer :)

There is no term called "grace period" it is called "screensaver timeout"

This setting is located in the User Configuration\Administrative templates\Control Panel\Desktop

You can also go to the Energy Star website for a preconfigure adm of settings http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=power_mgt.pr_power_mgt_ez_gpo
