If you disable this policy, screen savers cannot run. This policy also disables the Screen Saver section of the Screen Saver tab in Display in Control Panel. As a result, users cannot change their screen saver options.

If you do not configure this policy, it has no effect on the system.

If you enable this policy, a screen saver will run if the following two condtions are true: First, a valid screensaver on the client is specified via the Screen saver executable name policy setting or through Control Panel on the client computer. Second, the screensaver timeout is set to a nonzero value via the policy setting or through Control Panel.
