Group Policy not blocking inheritance

Last Modified: 2016-10-12
I created a screen lockout policy for our domain.  I have an OU set up for our Internet cafe since I do not want the computers in the cafe to have the same settings as the computers used by staff (Inheritance is blocked for this OU in Group Policy Management).  The computers in the Internet cafe have the screen lockout policy applied to them even though inheritance is blocked and GPM does not show the screen lockout policy being inherited by the OU.  What am I missing here?  Thanks!
