    Setting Screen Saver with managed users in 10.5 server

    Yes its me again, I cant seem to find how to set the default screensaver on managed users. The users I am setting up have no access to the control panel so it will not be an option that they can change. Does anyone know where the screensaver preference resides in workgroup manager in 10.5 server. Thanx.:-)

    Ah. That one

    I simply give the users access to the option in System Preferences- but that's not ideal. If you click the link below you will find a way to do this through Preference Manifests- well, a way to get around the fact that it still doesn't work in Leopard Server like it should

    Hope it helps some!
