Disable screen lock using group policy

I have one computer that we use to monitor security cameras on our network and I need this computer to never lock, meaning the screen locks and then someone needs to do Ctrl+Alt+Del to unlock it and put the username and password back in.

This computer is a member of the domain and I've moved it into it's own OU, so that the default domain policy won't affect it. I've also created a new group policy, linked it and enforced in that OU that the security computer is in, but I'm not sure of the exact settings that will prevent it from locking.
Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Is this what you where looking for? under these settings is where you can remove the locked computer settings.

I am guessing the current domain policy enforces this currently?  So if you make the change in the computer screen saver settings and reboot it reverts back?

Here's a long short...
In regedit on the workstation you could try the following:

HKLM\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"DisableLockWorkstation"=dword:00000001
