Increase amount of idle time required before suspending session

Lenovo X201 tablet running Windows 7 on Active Directory requires user to login every 15 minutes. Comes up with "Ctrl+Alt+Del or use windows security button to log on"  and says computer is locked. Changed default from 15 minutes in gpedit.msc to 9999. Next day it goes right back to loggin out in 15 minutes. Group Policy settings does not work.Is there a registry tweak to correct this, or another way to .change that stays.

check your screen saver and power options settings

The power option settings was one of the first fix I tried. Under Control Panel->Power Options->selected Balanced (radio button) clicked on "Change plan settings" and tried with plug-in and battery was set to never.

There were somewhere there it says "Require password on wake up but the option was Yes could not change button to No it was greyed out.

Did not try setting the screen-saver. None is the default.

Strange thing is the computer only does this on one person's account. Whenever someone else login it stays on much longer about 30 minutes longer.
