I need to be able to control or removed the lock time on Windows 7 clients. Currently our display computers time out at some uncontrolled time.

You probably want your display computers on all the time.

Start, Control Panel, Power Options, select your plan, Change Plan settings:

Put Computer to Sleep:  Never.
Turn Off Display: Never.

Those two settings should keep your computer on and running.

Thanks, that worked. I have changed the group policy and I got off track thinking that had something to do with it.
