I have installed Windows 2012 Server. I use it for testing ..I do not want it to lock up after being idle for a while. I wonder if there is a way to disable the lock ?

Thanks

You can change this with the local security policy. Nothing new to 2012 here.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You can edit the Wall Paper settings for your server. Open the "Screen Saver Settings" and clear the option "On resume, display logon screen". As you know, you can access this option from the Display icon in the Control Panel

If you are controlling this setting throw AD polices: You can change the policy located in user configuration policy:
- Expand User Configuration, and then expand Administrative Templates.
- Expand Control Panel, and then click Display.
- In the right pane, double-click Password protect the screen saver.
- Click to select Disable on the Policy tab. This prevents users from setting passwords on screen savers for this computer or domain.
- Click the Explain tab for information about how to use this policy.
- Click Apply.
- Click OK, and then close the MMC.
