Group Policy - Amount of idle time required before suspending session not working?

(OP)
I have a GPO in my domain that is intended to lock the workstations after 10 minutes of inactivity. I use the following setting to do this:

Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options

Microsoft Network Server: Amount of idle time required before suspending session.

So this setting does what i want it to do...for SOME of my machines SOME of the time. All the machines are getting and applying the policy, but it isnt actually working on some of them, but only sporadically. I confirmed that the workstations are in the correct OU, the GPO has the correct permissions, and when i check the machines locally, the policy is getting applied. Anyone ever had any issue like this with this setting?
