Somebody here mentioned to me that her screen doesn’t lock like it is supposed to after 15 minutes. I couldn’t figure out why because I thought I had everything in group policy set right. I lock my computer myself every time I get up from it so I never noticed. But come to find out that if a screen saver isn’t selected on the client machine it will not lock unless you set the policy “screen saver executable name.” I guess it is my fault for not completely reading the descriptions for the other three settings that say you have to specify the executable name. I just typed in scrnsave.scr for the black one, that way it looks like the monitor went to sleep. It should ask for a password when it wakes back up.
Spending hours slamming my head against my desk so you don't have to.
