Do you have much experience working with the Windows registry? If not, this could be a lot trickier. 🙂

Open regedit on a client and browse to one of the following locations:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop or HKEY_USERS.DEFAULTControl PanelDesktop

From there you can setup your screensaver options, export the information to a .reg file (and delete the unnecessary lines from the .reg file once it’s created). Other than that, EBH covered all the Wyse scripting needs. You don’t need to copy the registry file to the device itself, as the script will just call it with the MR (merge registry) command. Create a script, don’t reimage a bunch of terminals just for a screensaver… 🙄

Here’s a cut & paste of a sample reg file, copy all of this text into notepad and name it whatever you want .reg: (this will basically set windows to it’s default screensaver (the xp logo bouncing around) to activate after 10 min/600seconds, and to require a password on exit…

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop]
“ScreenSaverIsSecure”=”1”
“ScreenSaveTimeOut”=”600”
“ScreenSaveActive”=”1”
“SCRNSAVE.EXE”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\logon.scr”
