GPO: Enforcing Lock after a certain idle time - but not allow them to lock it otherwise. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have windows 7 enterprise and Windows 10 Education clients, and I am a looking at implementing a group policy to lock a computer after a certain amount of idle time has occurred, but not allow them to lock it otherwise.

    Is that even possible?
