Group Policy Screen Saver Broken

Hi:
I set Group Policy to start the Screen Saver in 15 minutes but it does not
seem to work anymore. I am not sure if it is Outlook/Exchange connection or
a problem with Group Policy. Anyone else experiencing similar problems?

Thanks, Cindy

Screensaver should start even with Outlook/Exchange connection as long as
the system is idle.

The only application that was open on these XP SP2 desktops was outlook and
the Screen saver did not start. MS Antispyware installed, CA Etrust
Anti-virus. Anyone else have any idea? It used to work but I can't tell
exactly when it stopped

From the command prompt run "gpresult" and it will tell you what policies
were applied to the workstation

I ran the Group Policy Results from Group Policy Management tool on one of
the desktops and the policy is enabled but does not work.
