Auto logoff after idle time
Posted on 2011-09-23
I am trying to setup a GP that will auto logoff or lock client PC's after a certain amount of idle time.
The environment is SBS 2003 with XP, Vista and 7 clients hanging off it.
You would think this would be a simple problem but its not, in 2003 GP I can set it up to require a password upon the screen save coming on which from what I have read seems to be the only way to do it. Unfortunately this only works for the XP clients as Windows 7 clients will not accept a .scr file or something along those lines so the group policy will not apply to them.
Is there a simple way to achieve what I want to do?
