Block a User Group Policy on a Particular Computer (Terminal Server)

Hello,

We have a Group Policy for to Enable and Password protect the screen saver for all users.  However, our users use an application on a remote terminal server regularly throughout the day. Not so regularly, unfortunately, that this timeout is not a serious hassle.  I see little need for the terminal server session to be impacted by this policy.   This policy is applied under User Configuration and not Computer Configuration so I don’t see how to block its application on the terminal server.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You can use wmi filtering to not apply or to unset the screensaver policy
