Windows Server 2008 R2 - No auto lock RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I'll start by saying I'm a newbie in all things related to servers and I'm not English native speaker.

    I have a Server 2008 R2 install on a new machine that'll be our future website server.
    I use Teamviewer to access the server on the datacenter.
    We are a team of 3 techs.

    The server will be without a domain server, so it is configured as being in a workgroup. Since the 3 of us remote access the machine and have diferent levels of access, it is important for the machine to auto lock or even auto log-off after a period of inactivity, but this does not happen.

    I've added the following keys to the registry, but still no luck:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "ScreenSaverIsSecure"="1"
    "ScreenSaveActive"="1"
    "ScreenSaveTimeOut"="5"
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "ScreenSaverIsSecure"="1"
    "ScreenSaveActive"="1"
    "ScreenSaveTimeOut"="5"

    I've searched the web for help but so far nothing.

    Here I've seen this question similar but it has not been answered:

    Any help is welcomed.

    Thanks in advanced,
