GPO question

I have machines that the screen will not shut off at the login screen. It just stays on. I put a gpo in to turn on screen saver after 15 min but it still stays on. I would prefer it to be black or monitor to shut off. Can someone direct me in the right area?

I went under user config | Policies | Admin Template | Control Panel | Personalizaton | Screen saver time out

I also turned on enable screen saver

The server is 2008 and the machines are Win 7

Thanks

It sounds like you need to set power options. These can be found under: Computer Config/Policies/Admin Templates/System/Power Management/Sleep Settings

Hi

Try in 'security filtering' to not filter on a security group but on user accounts to test, this is how it got it working.

If it is part of a bigger GPO, consider to create a seperate one calles screen-saver or something.

Also ensure that the computer(s) are in the correct OU within AD. Computer policies will need a reboot to take effect, and a user policy will take a log off and login.

I believe its the power options I was looking for. Let me try that and see if it works.
