Allow regular user to unlock screensaver locked computer

By admingurl ·
Is there a group policy or Windows Security setting that would allow some of my users (i.e. non administators) to unlock a workstation?

So far all I can find is a third party application ( Unlock Administrator ) This program seems to do the trick but I obviously would prefer to do this through GP.

Note: I don't want to let just anyone to unlock the computer - I want to be able to select only some users.

Any suggestions?

I have the same issue.
I want to delegate the ability to unlock a users machine (due to screen saver) to non-administrators.
I haven't found anything on how to do it.

There is a third party program that allows you to give others (even non-admins) the ability to unlock a computer. It is called Unlock Administrator and can be found at
