Stop computer from locking

    Question

  • I have  a computer that I want to stop from auto locking there currently is no gpo in place for this company wide but I have created a new OU and blocked inheritance and under userconfig/policies/admintemp/contpnl/personalize enabled screen saver timeout=0 sec, disabled password protect, system/ctrlaltdel enabled remove lock computer


    On computer config/pref/contpnl/poweropt/pwrplanwinvista/properties/

    Require a password on wakeup: No No
    Turn off hard disk after: Never Never
    Sleep after: Never Never
    Allow hybrid sleep: Off Off
    Hibernate after: Never Never
    Lid close action: Sleep Sleep
    Power button action: Sleep Sleep
    Start menu power button: Do nothing Do nothing
    Link State Power Management: Moderate power savings Maximum power savings
    Minimum processor state: After 5 minutes After 5 minutes
    Maximum processor state: After 100 minutes After 100 minutes
    Turn off display after: Never Never
    Adaptive display: On On
    Critical battery action: Do nothing Hibernate
    Low battery level: After 10 minutes After 10 minutes
    Critical battery level: After 5 minutes After 5 minutes
    Low battery notification: Off Off
    Low battery action: Do nothing Do nothing



























    Im still locking after about 15 min which i believe is default, ran gpresult /r and i see my policy applied but cannot figure out what to do to stop it from ever locking.

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?

  • have you tried running gpresult /v on the client machine?

    to check whether the GPO to exempt computer from locking has been filtered out.

    if it still applying then the blocked inheritance was not set correctly.

    when you said GPO applied, what is the GPO being applied?

    is it the GPO to lock the computer?

    if it is the GPO to lock the computer, then of course it is correct.

    You need to see from gpresult /v that the GPO has been filtered out, if you don't want the GPO to be applied to your computer.
