Task : Lock screen after 10 minutes inactivity

Hello,

Months ago i made a task to lock screen after 10minutes idle. It worked well but it doesn't anymore, didn't change it and no app making the comp busy so i dunno why... Maybe cause of an update or something? Hope to find an answer.

Thanks.

Old thread.. But having the same problem again as i just did a clean install. I made a .bat file with the following text :

@echo off
rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation
cls

I created a task, set it to launch that bat after system's inactive for 5mins, no waiting. It doesn't seem to work..

It seems that screensaver may interfere with this..? If screensaver start too earlier, computer won't lock, and if task lock computer before screen saver comes in, it'll never come, right?
