    Lock workstation after inactivity

    Are there are Group Policies or similar methods that allow for workstations to automatically lock after a period of inactivity?

    (And will it be intelligent enough to not lock if there is something such as a PowerPoint being displayed!)

    Screensaver + lock after screensaver closes?

    Then it won't go into screensaver when it's got presentation mode on (aka fullscreen etc)
