In a small network where users access servers (Windows server 2008 R2) with RDP, I want all users to log on again after 10 minutes of inactivity. I have set the Screensaver Wait time to 600 seconds through Group Policy, but users can still check or uncheck the box "On resume, display logon screen". Can anyone tell me which setting or policy I have to change to prevent users from unchecking this option?

Create a user GPO or if you have an existing one you can set the following:

User Configuration > Administrative Template > Control Panel > Display:

Password protect the screen saver - Enable
Screen Saver timeout - Enable - 600 seconds

Those are the settings that I am using now. However, that doesn't prevent users from unchecking the box next to "On resume, display logon screen".

I see, have you tried to set "Prevent changing screen saver" to enabled?

I now have enabled these policies:
Screen Saver
Screen Saver executable name
Password protect the screen saver
Screen Saver timeout.

And now it works as I intended. Thank you for helping me on this one!
