Is GPO the all powerful network manager

By Sei-Steve ·
I hear all the time that GPO is the way to go for User control but each time I request something easy it turns out to be difficult.. for example

I have searched around to find a GPO solution for the following Server 2008/Windows 7 requirements....

Single machines at remote locations and 3 accounts (separate users)need to run from the same machine. However to enable availability I need to ensure that after 2 minutes the locked screen saver is enable and after 20 minutes any opened files are saved and the User logged out leaving the machine available for others...

Sounds simple and GPO can for lock-down etc but How do I do the rest??

2) The TR search function makes it difficult to find a particular "Discussion" or "Question" if it has not had a recent post; the two types get mingled in the listings. By keeping ea
