Here at my new job I am trying to get some security set up. Starting small I went in and set up the screensaver to kick on after 180 seconds and require a password. Yet nothing is being pushed to the PC end. Been a LONG time since I have dealt with GP and was wondering what I might need to look at?

Did you reboot the client machine?
or try gpupdate /force
may need to do it in an admin cdm window...

Yeah group policy pushes are sketchy. gpupdate /force as rumor said seems to be the most likely to work, though still not a full guarantee from my experience. Give it a few reboots.

Edit: run rsop (I think rsop.msc) on the client to see if it's getting the policy you think it should be getting. Maybe it's not the right area to affect it the way you want.

You can also check the event logs to see if there are events listed related to the GP...

When I do a test GPs, I usually include a script which creates a folder on the client machine. That way, I can tell if the dang thing ran or not...

Also depends on where you created the GP! (which DC)

it takes time to propagate...

if the client doesn't hit that server when the users tries to login, that GP is PROBABLY not gonna run...

Are you linking it to the appropriate group?

That is you cant run a computer script against a user group, as you cant run user configurations against machines.
