Once you have the policy in place, you cannot allow certain users to
untick the setting - as it's greyed out. That's a true policy's behavior.

Anyway, you could seperate the notebooks into their own OUs and apply
the loopback processing in merge mode. With that, you can use a
different setting for all users logging on to that notebook:

Thanks for your prompt reply,
I have enabled the Screen Saver, and the idle policy for the Domain-
wise,
Does it mean I could create an OU for the notebook computers and
create a new "user policy" to override the setting from that have been
given to the users which inherit from the domain policy and enable the
loopback processing in merge mode?

Yes - try so. Create an OU for the notebooks and enable both loopback
and the user policy for the alternate screen saver settings. That should
do the trick.

Hi Florian,

You mentioned "it actually impersonates the user logged in" and "If
the user has no permissions to apply the loopback-policies, the user
ormalGroup Policies will be applied."

Where can i assign necessary permission to the users who need to apply
loopback-policies?
thanks again
