Auto-lock Workstation in Windows 7/XP

We are in a 2008/2003 server environment running Win XP and 7 clients.

I wanted to see where the setting at the server-level is to auto-lock a workstation after __ minutes/hours (assuming there is a GPO for this).

I know from the client-side we cna do it via Screen Saver settings, but would like to set it domain-wide, as well as to remove the ability for the user to disable it.

Hi,

Let me Google that for you... Even though this Technet article is for Windows 2000, the data remains the same.

You can do it by setting the same screen saver settings with a GPO - if its set with a GPO then the user cannot override it.

In the Group Policy Management Editor (08 server). Under Control Panel -> Display - It only diaplsy 2 settings, I do not see anything related to Screen Savers (ex. Disable the Display Control Panel & Hide Settings tab).
