    Screen lock time


    Scope

    I have searched and searched for a solution on this issue and have found one that works but the settings do not stick.


    Description and research

    I have 2 Windows 10 upgraded computers that the accounts lock out after only one minute. This is a domain environment with a 30 minute lockout time. The settings on the local systems reflect this except in registry under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\InactivityTimeoutSecs it goes back to 708 sec. This registry setting is the one that, if I change to 0 sec, fixes the issue but it continues to return to 708 sec.
    Trust me, have changed all power settings, sleep settings, screen saver settings, and unattended sleep settings and this registry setting is the only one that returns results, for a day.... then it returns.


    Does anyone know why this setting changes back to 708 sec (11.8 minutes) even though the domain is set to 30 minutes and I manually change it to 0 sec.

    :)
