GPO change screensaver settings without users logging off

Hi

Currently we have no policy on screensaver settings however thats about to change, we are going to push our the .scr file via SCCM so we dont have to restart computers.

My question is when i apply the GPO to users that specifies screensaver settings will it apply as part of the normal background refresh or does it require a logoff

Thanks

In all cases after updating GPO on server You have to push (use gpupdate /force from command line)  the GPO update on server and then push it on workstation. Also restart would do the thing if the GPO is assigned to computer/user, and log off - if it is assigned to user

I have tested this just setting it to the Ribbons.scr screensaver in the GPO and even after a gpupdate / force and a log off and back on its not working, if i restart the PC it works,

The GPO is a user setting so , is there somthing i have missed, surely its should not require a restart, my lab is a single domain / site so nothing complex there either?

Thanks
