Password Protection

Determines whether the screen saver will be password protected and whether the protection will be limited to certain hours of the day. By default password protection is always on. The password protection times includes the starting minute but not the ending minute. The end time may be earlier than the start time, so you may choose for password protection to be enforced only after business hours. If the start and end times are equal, the password protection is always in effect. The grace period is the time after the screen saver starts and before the workstation is locked. By default it is 0 seconds. With this policy you can also limit the hours when the screen saver is active or the hours when power saving features are active, by linking them to password protection hours.

Supported on: At least Windows 2000
