Automatically Lock Windows 2000

By Perm ·
Is there a way in Win 2000 to have it lock itself? I don't want the workstation to logoff just lock. The ideal solution would lock the workstation after a period of 15 minutes or so of inactivity. Any ideas?

Thank you

Just set up the screen saver...

by MallardtooXX In reply to Automatically Lock Window ...

Just set it so the screen saver requires a password to stop. When the computer goes inactive the screensaver kicks in in about 15 minutes (that is your choice) and requires a password to get back in. Pretty down and dirty way but it works.

Control Key

Here is a device that can be used to lock ANY PC as soon as you walk away from it.

No timers, no extra passwords.

Just a simple device that senses the presence of a matching key in your pocket.

Wrong link

Oops, that was the wrong security key.

Check out this TR article for a security solution.

Remove any spaces from the pasted link.

There are a number of these devices from different manufactures.
