GPO timer works if set to 20 minutes but not 30 minutes for WinExit.scr RRS feed

  • Question

  •  We are implementing a forced logoff if idle time is equal to 30 minutes. For some reason, this does not work if set to 30 minutes and works fine if set to 20 minutes.

    Does anybody know why this is?

    I am currently testing for times between 20 - 30 minutes to see if I can get close to 30 minutes.

    Please advise.

    It seems strange, how do you set the policy? You should check if the policy applied. When you use Winexit, you need to enable its "Logoff" option. To do that, you need to access its configuration window. Check out the information on How do I configure the Winexit screensaver? to see if there's any help there
