    What exactly are you trying to implement? There are several different things that people sometimes describe as "lockouts".

      All in group policy
      Do you mean "lock user out after 4 bad passwords" (check COMPUTER--POLICIES--WINDOWS--SECURITY--ACCOUNT POLICIES--ACCOUNT LOCKOUT POLICY)
      or do you mean "screensaver with password after 10 mins" (Check USER--POLICIES--ADMIN TEMPLATES--CONTROL PANEL--PERSONALIZATION)
