Touchscreen screensaver password protect

By epilote1 ·
We are wanting to utilize a group policy that will enforce a password protected screensaver starting after 10 minutes of inactivity on any workstation. The problem arises with a group of users who operate scanners with touchscreens. They do not use their mice or keyboards. Therefore, 10 minutes after they begin work, their screensaver will start and they are required to input their password to unlock it. Is there a way in Windows XP (perhaps via a registry hack) to enable the use of a touchscreen to keep the screensaver from turning on?

Touchscreen screensaver password protect

Have you tried using the Clear Screen Saver from Microsoft? Works on older OS's but not Windows 7. The files are Clearsaversvc.exe and Clear Screen Saver.scr. and are included with the Win2K resource kit Supplement One CD.

A better idea is to not apply the scr policy to those units.
