I have a Group Policy that disables Activate Screen
saver. I have one machine that logs into the domain that
I would like to exempt from that.

How?

This is the Default Domain Policy that is disabling it.

Thanks

That is a user configuration policy - not computer, but you can exempt users by
creating a group and then giving that group deny permissions to the GPO in GPO
properties/security - apply to. Keep in mind that will disable ALL user configuration
for that GPO. Other options would be to create a separate GPO with that screen saver
policy disabled, put it at the top of the list and filter it so that it applies ONLY
to the group that should be exempt and that computer by computer name in the apply
permission. Otherwise put that computer in it's own OU and create a GPO for that OU
with "loopback processing" enabled in computer configuration under administrative
templates/system/Group Policy. Then configure user configuration on that GPO with
either merge or replace mode for loopback processing and everyone that logs onto that
computer will have that user configuration applied to them. The links below may be
helpful. --- Steve
