Interactive Logon: Machine inactivity limit not working right

This is a good setting to roll out across your network as it means that devices left unattended for long periods of time will lock them self's but there is a catch.

When you set this time out you must set the screen saver wait time too to be less or equal to the timeout.

If you don't it can default to 60 seconds and lock the desktop even before the machine inactivity limit is reached.  Does not matter if screen saver is enabled or not it still uses the screen saver wait setting.

You can not set the wait setting high then the inactivity limit.
