Block Group Policy for Servers

I've got a screen saver policy in place, but I'd like to block all servers from receiving the policy.  Possible?

Dont forget to re-link any policies in you do want to work.

This type of policy should only be applied to OU's that you want it applied to.  Remove the policy from the root. Has this been set in default domain policy?

Also, if this is a user policy, you'll need to create a new GPO with the screen saver settings  the way you want them in the User Configuration, Enable loop back group policy processing and link the GPO to the Servers OU.  This way any user that logs into the server(s) will get that policy for their screen saver.
