This is for a Windows 2000 domain running Windows 2000 Pro workstations.
We have domain policies set that can not be changed that require that an
inactive machine will start the password protect screen saver after 15
We have a couple special use workstations that need to have the screen saver
disabled regardless of the user logging in without blocking the other setting
in other policies.
I have created an new OU and moved the workstations that we want to disable
the screen saver on into them. I then created a new GPO on this OU and went
in to the Admin Templates\Control Panel\Display and disable the “Activate
screen saver” setting. With the No Override turned on or off on this new GPO
and regardless of the user account logged in, the screen saver keeps turning
on and locking the workstation.
Any ideas on what I’m missing?

I would’nt suggest to use domain wide policies for this purpose, but its ok.
OK. You have to use the loopbackprocessingmode for these workstations.
OK just enable the loopbackprocessingmode under: administrative templates\system\group policies
Put it back to the default state.
Yeah. Userpolicies are for users. (exeption: loopbackprocessingmode)
PS: Take your hands off from No override an No inheritance 😉
