Disable Group Policy Managed Screensaver During Presentations?
Posted on 2013-05-14
We have a password protected screensaver enabled for our workstations to auto-lock idle computers. Clients are running Windows 7 Pro x64.
However, our conference rooms have VGA inputs where employees can connect their laptops for meetings. If they are presenting a PowerPoint, it somehow stops the screensaver from appearing.
I'm wondering if we can do anything group policy or otherwise to allow the screensaver to be disabled during presentations.
Note: I've tried turning on "presentation mode", but it doesn't seem to have any effect, possible because the screensaver settings are AD managed. Any other thoughts?
