VMware OS Optimization tool, Screen Saver

I'm trying to create a gold image for deployment, however when i use the tool I'm having a problem with the screen saver after 15 minutes. i wish to change some settings for this. however i am unable to do so.

i have tried registry changes, GPO, etc and all nothing.

if i do not run the optimization tool for a test VM i can adjust settings like i want. but the moment i do, i cannot.

does anybody know what setting i need to adjust in the tool to let me do what i would like? because i am unable to find it in there.

What does this mean and can you share what you've set in the gpos, also look at power settings as well.

"MaxH • Feb 27, 2020

Has anyone had VMs lock after 15 minutes of inactivity after running the Optimization tool? I'm unable to reverse or modify this setting. I've tried multiple settings, reg changes, GPO changes. The VMs continue to lock after 15 minutes."

i replied to his comment that i am also having this problem

the one I've seen the tool is the power policy, you need to use gpedit to set to your own policy and then make sure the screen timeout in the power policy is

here is some of the links i went to for information about changing this

How to Change the Windows 10 Lock Screen Timeout

https://www.onmsft.com/how-to/adjust-windows-10-lock-screen-timeout

even though i did the change nothing would stop the screen saver, could be power, from changing.

it's always grayed out.

I'm trying to find in the tool what is causing this problem so i can UN-click it
