    Screensaver/Password GPO

    i have set policies in
    user config> admin templates> control Panel/personalization to
    enable password protect
    screen saver time out: 600
    prevent changing screensaver
    enable screensaver
    force specific screen saver: mystify.scr

    with the scope filtering of authenticated users, domain users, users

    but nothing (expect now the screensaver is disabled/greyed out, all my other policies are cool

    any ideas????

    btw: server 2008r2 with w7 clients

    edit: right click on personalize is showing the screen saver is set and the time out is correct and they are greyed out as i would expect .... but nothing
