Group policy to prevent Svr 2016 & Win 10 Hyper-V virtual OS's from locking

How can I create a group policy that will prevent Sever 2016 & Windows 10 Hyper-V virtual operating systems from locking?

This will be for my lab environment. I'm getting tired of having to constantly unlock and log back onto my virtual machines.

If you want to enable/disable this functionality on-demand without modifying GPO for all devices, use MoveMouse only on the lab devices you are busy with.

A portable application that moves mouse via code so that computer does not lock. You can stop and start the application from the actual session so that you do not need to globally disable a security feature like lock screen, even for a lab.
