Screensaver programs

By arthur72 ·
I am looking for a program that after an alotted time the screensaver will kick in. But when the screensaver kicks in only a manager or admin can unlock it. Does anyone know of such a program?? i have looked at Fortres.. it seems so so and i am not totally sure it does that particular action.. thanks

Why do you need a program?

There is an option in screen saver settings to enable a password.

Set the time you want and enable the password.

You can use group policy settings so that users cannot change the time or password.

What I am suggesting is that YOU set the password and only you and the managers know what the password is.

Unless I am missing something, the screen saver password does not need to be the same as the users logon password.

well i am really looking for is to prevent the end user from logging back in after a certain time..for example.. if the end user goes out for lunch and takes more than an hour an administrator or Mgr will have to unlock. as you know that you can have a screensaver lock the computer but the user can unlock it with their password. that is what we are trying to avoid
