Win 10 - Enable Console Lock (screen) & Set Time?

Recommended Posts


Pretty new to Automate. I've been looking around for a script to use for groups/companies not on a domain and need console lock set.

Manually, it's a registry edit: HKEYLOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\7516b95f-f776-4464-8c53-06167f40cc99\8EC4B3A5-6868-48c2-BE75-4F3044BE88A7 , change Attributes value to 2.

Then using the GUI, change adv power settings, adjust Console lock display off timeout value.

I've been trying to use CLI powercfg, but the sub GUID for this setting (console lock) is eluding me. 

Anyone out there dealt with this before by chance?
