Bypassing a locked workstation

By jbarber66 ·
I am looking at providing a Web-based Self-Service password reset for an organization. Problem comes when the password needs a reset and the workstation is locked (either on login, wake or screen-saver). Someone told me that Windows can be configured so that we can escape out of the locked workstation and be directed to a pre-determined, restricted web page. I have been looking around for a while now and can't locate any info on this. Any ideas ? Even third parties could work.

or a post-it stuck to the tower. We tell users not to write their passwords down, but they do anyway.
