Hello EE,

Can someone help as to which settings are needed for Window 10 and auto lock PC after set time interval?

I have Windows 7 working well following the below links:

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/1416384-gpo-to-lock-the-computer-after-10-minutes-of-inactivity

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/870464-gpo-screensaver-timeout-not-working

I did not have to keep the registry settings in the links above just needed to enable\set:

Enable Screensaver

Password protect the screen saver

Screen saver timeout

This is working out well for users in the GPO.

Tested and works great on Windows 7 x64 Ent.

Tested on Windows 10 x64 Ent. and does not appear to pick this up and I am leaning towards another GPO overriding it as some GPOs in my environment I do not have access to modify.

Any ideas, tips, or tricks I can try to get both Windows 7 and Windows 10 auto lock working in one GPO?

Thank you

Apply a group policy preferences power plan that turn off the screen after certain Intervel.
The first is to configure a screen saver with the required timeout and a password requirement. This can be done under User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Personalization. The required settings are: 'Enable screen saver', 'Screen saver timeout'.
