Screen locks after 20 minutes despite screen saver timeout being disabled

Gurus,

Running Windows Server 2003 SP2 in a single Active Directory domain (lab
environment). I have a group policy enabled and set at the domain level to
disable the screen saver timeout and I have rebooted all machines in the
domain after making this setting. However, the screen on all machines still
locks (not really a screen saver, I know). Since this is a lab environment
I do not want this to occur. What am I missing?

1. Screen saver timeout changed to 180 minutes and doesn't activate

2. Have screen saver that I want in list of possible screen savers to

I've been programming in Visual Basic.Net 2003 and I've written a screen
saver program that I plan on marketing. It's basically done. I created an
install program for it and installed it on my computer and have successfully
run it outside of the Visual Basic.net work environment. I have Windows XP
Home edition with all the latest updates. I've purchased screen savers online
and when I go to the display options and click on screen savers there is a
drop down list that includes all the different screen savers that you can use
when your computer is idle for whatever time you decide upon. I want to know
how to get my screen saver into that list. Maybe it's something that I have
to do in the Visual Basic.net program or maybe it's something else.
