Hi, @howtodothis 


What policy have you configured?


There are several templates for confiugre screen lock time. 


And it has some difference depending on OS version.


1. Change Power Option Profile (You can use other customized profile)

Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Power Management


2. Change Interactive logon

Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options

'Interactive logon : Machine inactivity limit' 


3. Change registry

User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Registry

HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop

ScreensSaveisSecure = "1"

ScreenSaveTimeout = "seconds"
