I have a user that is using a fax program that needs to disable the Windows 7 Screen saver (too CPU intensive and will starve comm. threads for fax receive they say). Fax program works great other than this and do not want to change this program.
Also, the fax program will not work if you log off the computer. You are only allowed to use the Windows "Lock" for security.
The issue is the user wants to have an automatic way to lock the Windows 7 computer (after 30 minutes for example). They are using manual Start -> Shutdown -> Lock method now but need automatic method.
Is there a way to do this natively in Windows 7? If not, is there a good free or inexpensive paid program to do this?
