The screensaver does not start when you perform media actions in Lync

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"
