Deny individual users' access to screen-saver settings
This is an extension of Feature #312871, but because it's a little more involved than changing a simple default, I thought it would be better to have a separate feature request.
The screen-saver settings for time-out and "require password" are security settings that really should not be freely available to the individual user. I propose that we
1) set a reasonable default (60sec, 15sec, always require passwd) (see Feature #312871) and
2) only let these settings be modified by someone with root-access.
To a regular user, the timeout and "require password" settings should appear "greyed out", clearly indicating "not available".
This is simply a reasonable security measure, fitting nicely into the overall security-conscious profile of openSUSE. Security measures (firewall, apparmor, encryption etc) are typically accessible only with root-access; it's only sensible that we apply this principle to the screen-saver settings too.
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
Office user - the user is able to select a screen-saver, but the other settings cannot be accessed, accidentally or otherwise. The install or admin person need not change anything to get a sane security setup for the desktop.
SOHO or home users - same as above, but the default screen-saver settings may be changed by switching to root access.
