GP - Inactivity Alternative

Group policy to lock out inactive users does not always work. The following is an alternative approach that might be appropriate (

  • Logon the domain controller and then run 'GRoup Policy Management'
  • Create a new GPO item and call it "Lock When Idle"
  • Associate this to the required users
  • Edit the group policy and navigate to "User Configuration|PReferences|Control Panel|Settings|Scheduled Tasks"
  • In here create a new scheduled task called 'Lock When Idle'
  • Update the task as follows:
    • Task tab
      • Action: Update
      • Run: rundll32.exe
      • Arguments: user32.dll, LockWorkStation
      • Scheduled tab
      • Scheduled Task: When idle
      • Start Time: blank
      • When computer has been idle for: 15 minutes
    • Settings tab
      • Uncheck everything
    • Common tab
      • Uncheck everything
