Screen saver GPO for Windows 8, Windows 2008 and Windows 2012

We have a GPO which updates the screensaver on our workstations - please see the attached.  

It works fine on our Windows 7 machines.  

It seems that the GPO has problem on Windows 8.1 PRO.  Also, we need to know if the GPO can be used on a Windows 2008 and Windows 2012 servers.  

Please advise.

no attachment, and it should work across all platforms, what is the problem you are getting?

Sorry, I have just uploaded the screen shot of my GPO.

Basically, the workstation gets the GPO and I went to the screensaver setting on the PC and it is grayed out.  This shows the PC is locked down.  GPRESULT /R shows as well.

However, I do not see the screen saver activated after I leave it idle for 10 mins.

Would you check the attached and let me know if I need to change something else in my policy?

Thanks.

You don't enforce a screensaver, do you? Try to enforce logon.scr

Do you mean to ENABLE "FORCE SPECIFIC SCREENSAVER" and specify LOGON.SCR?  

If yes, our management might not want us to do that.

Is there another way?

That's what I meant. Please try it for a test, just to make sure. Take a test-OU and a test GPO.
