Can someone show me where the GPO is for activating the screensaver and screensaver panel? We are using mixed 2003\2008 server and XP\Windows 7 clients.

You can use GPMC for configuring group policy
Screen Saver settings can be found in the below location

Go to:  Policy > User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization

Enable these items and set a value where appropriate:

Enable Screen Saver                 Enabled      
Force Specific Screen Saver      Enabled      scrnsave.scr (or other file of your choosng)
Password Protect Screen Saver      Enabled      
Screen Saver timeout               Enabled      Time set in seconds (900 in the example)


This GPO should work for both Windows 7 and XP clients in a new GPO or an existing GPO.
