Screen lockout in 3 minutes but as per gpo it suppose to lockout after 30minutes


  • Dear All,

       I have deployed a GPO (windows 2008 r2) to lockout windows 7 screens if idle for 30minutes. But screen was getting locked in 3 minutes instead of 30 minutes. Following are the GPO settings

        Enable Screen Saver --  enabled
        Force Specific Screen Saver -- enabled but left blank
        Password Protect the Screen Saver  -- enabled
        Screen Saver timeout -- 30 minutes

    Even I have tried to schedule task (lockout the screen idle after 30 minutes) through GPO

         rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation    

    Similarly, it was getting locked in 3 minutes not in 30 minutes.

    I have even disabled power settings.

    Can anybody help me to fix this problem.

  • Check RSOP on client machine, is it applying screensaver policy ?

  • Hi,

    Do you check the RSOP report and can you let us know the  feedback?

    You can run the RSOP report via commands: gpresult / h rsop.html .

    Best Regards,
