Default Domain Computer locks after 5 minutes

I have a win 7 domain computer that always switches back to the logon screen after 5 minutes of inactivity. It's the only one that does this and we want it to be longer ( 1 hour)

Screen set to turn off after 30 minutes
Set to go to sleep after 1 hour
no screen saver turned on, and doesn't have "require password on wake" turned on.

I have been filtering through all my GPOs and the settings on this computer to find out why it still locks after 5 minutes. Any other place this could be set that I'm forgetting?

Well as it turns out, even though screen saver was disabled in Personalization, in registry editor I found
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaveTimeOut was set to 600. I removed this key and that seemed to do it.

Glad to hear you got it all figured, but tbh, someone can seriously screw up their Operating System messing with the registry if they don't know what their doing.

I'm sure you know you're way around the registry tho.

That's an easy fix. Just go into your settings.
