Locking idle devices via command

Recommended Posts

My plan is to automate locking of idle devices via command that can be run as a client task. I've created a dynamic group for idle devices and would run the task via that group.

I'd like to know when/how is the device considered Idle so that command doesn't run too soon for an example.

I am not sure about it since I don't work for ESET,but I believe ESET Protect will see the computer as idle , once the screensaver kicks in.

Just from my thoughts , I could be totally wrong.

Try to set that policy for one computer and leave that computer and see when it kicked in , and check in the same time the screensaver setting for that computer

And also if you have Domain Controllers , you can use Group Policy to modify when the PC will be idle/locked.

Thanks for the reply and the policy idea. Will try to create a new one with the dynamic group involve.

GP is not an option.

Thanks again!
