Most (all?) VSE policies have a drop-down where you select "Workstation" or "Server". Make sure you are setting the options on the "Server" setting.
Bah! I already knew that aswell!
Interestingly enough, this has fixed my password protection issue, but it still doesnt appear to be taking any notice of the managed tasks and autoupdate settings (still present and enabled in the console). To confirm, I set both sections in the policy to 'server' :-)

I don't know why it would apply some of the policy but not all of it. Maybe those two options need a restart?
Managed task didnt appear after first reboot, but did pop up after second... May run some further tests with this one!
Autoupdate task is now disabled (didnt check this after first reboot, but it appears to be disabled now). Worth noting that it can still be run manually from the console, which may not be wanted in a centrally managed environment (may want to control in low bandwidth environments that may die if more than 35 .gems out of date, but I think they may have other problems to look after if this is the case!)
Cheers for the responses!
Somewhere in the forums and/or Knowledge Base there is info about how to remove the Autoupdate task from the console. It is either a registry change or deleting a file, I can't remember which. I agree with you, there should be an easier way to remove or disable it.
https://community.mcafee.com/message/207294#207294 seems to have turned it off with a script via a regedit tweak. I am assuming that removing the key in question would remove it from the task list completely.
Cheers for all the responses!
This is an old thread I know....I am having this same issue and when I looked at my policies they are set to workstations. When I switch to servers I don't have the option to save the policy. Does anyone know what I need to do with this?
