GPO saver screen problem with win 7 (activates after every minute of idle time) Tags: Configuration Domain Controller Windows 7 Last response: September 13, 2010 7:02 PM in Windows 7 Share dmazuela September 9, 2010 7:27:55 PM Hello, I have configured the domain controller default GPO for screen saver password protect after 5 minutes idle time: In User configuration -> Administrative Templates -> control panes -> display: Screen Saver: Enable Screen Saver executable name: Enable / rundll32 user32.dll,LockWorkStation Password protect screen saver: enable Screen saver timeout: enable / 300 seconds The problem is that it works well for the windows xp user stations but not for win 7 user stations. It works after 1 minue idle time instead 5, even if I change the screen saver timeout for example 900 seconds. The win 7 stations keep poping the screensaver after every minute of idle time. So, how can I fix it for the screen saver to work after 5 minutes of idle time instead 1 minute?
