Via Group Policy we need to enable a screen save after a couple of minutes and have a session lock occur at the five minute mark. Does anyone know of  way to accomplish this? From what I've seen the session lock occurs at the same time the screen saver starts.

Either you password protect the screensaver, or you don't. If you do, then as soon as it appears, it will require the password to wake up the PC. This basically the GPO option Password protect the Screensaver under User configuration—>Administrative templates—–>Control Panel—–>Personalization.

So as far as I know, you cannot do this.

There is. Google screensavergraceperiod. Like any regsetting, it can be deployed by group policy preferences.
