WPShooter - This is from a post i made 3 months ago
If the system has the CTRL-ALT-DELETE dialog box disabled, but has a
Security Warning Dialog box before the user logs in ... here is a work
In HKEY_USERS (in the registry of course) Change the following Keys to these
"ScreenSaverIsSecure"="1" --- doesn't really matter not used
At the Security Warning Dialog Box the .Default settings are used (.Default
is not associated with the Default User Profile) except the (Monitor)
Once the Screen Saver becomes active it will then use the Last user's
Powersave configuration, which will then power down your monitor.
Note - If you set your .Default Screen Saver to 1 minute and the Last_user
has a Power Management - Monitor Off setting at 15 Minutes ---- The screen
saver will kick on at 1 minute and the Monitor will power off 14 minutes
Hopefully this helps someone else out... I only spent about 8 hours figuring
out the relationships
Hopefully this helps
