while we where doing some testing in our lab we noticed the screen savers on our lab computers never came on. this is due to starting a whiteboard or presentation in Lync
There is a design in Lync to prevent this. Microsoft did this on purpose.
Microsoft has released an update to over ride this feature. But the hotfix must be requested by calling Microsoft :(
After the update is installed, run the following command in Lync Server Management Shell to apply a client policy:
New-CsClientPolicyEntry -Name "UseDefaultWindowsScreenSaverPolicy" –Value "True"
