i have a couple of computers that are not processing a loopback policy that i created and I am not sure why.

I have a screensaver policy that kicks in after 5 minutes and its password protected (this gpo is fine)

I then have a couple of computers that need to have that disabled.  In the past, i setup a loopback to replace the GPO and disable the password protection.  

It doesnt work for some reason, RSOP is still reading the screensaver policy when it should read the local security policy instead.
