Locking console resets screen saver

Locking console resets screen saver

I have a server stored in a room shared with several
other companies. I have set the server screen saver to
activate (with a password) after 5 minutes of
inactivity. However, every time I 'manually' lock the
console (through CTRL-ALT-DEL) it resets the screen saver
settings to 'no screen saver'. I tested this on another
Windows 2000 server and observed the same behaviour. Is
this a known bug?

Anyway, the result is that the next time I access the
console and forget to lock it when I am done, the server
is left 'open'.

Any thoughts?

You might try configuring it in local Group Policy [gpedit.msc] instead under user
configuration/administrative templates/control panel/display to see if that makes any
difference. --- Steve
