Hello, this is regarding group policy setting. I know that you can set a policy (which is located under ?User Configuration-Administrative Templates-Control Panel-Display? in which you can set the screen saver to execute after designated time and have it password protect the computer at the same time. The computer is on a domain and what I?m looking to do is to have the screen saver execute after 60 seconds and have the user session lock after 15 min. to the point where they have to hit ?Ctrl+Alt+Del? in order to log on. I know it has to be done somewhere within the GP, as the server has a setting for the administrator to lock the computer when the user is idle for ?x? amount of time. I just can?t find it. Any thoughts?

Create a GPO and then drill down to User config>admin templates>control panel>display and then set the screensaver timeout to the desired time, and then also set "password protect screen saver."

When the user isn't using the system, the screen saver will fire off and then lock.

that is not what i'm looking for: if you will see in my post i know how to do what you have posted. What i'm looking for is to have the screen saver start after 60 seconds and to have the computer lock after 15 minutes. I don't want the computer to lock as soon as the screen save starts.
