Locked

I can't get into my account

By alicia.parker2012 ·
OK. so here's what happened. I left my laptop on the landing and when i came back, it had gone "to sleep" and locked my account. When i tried to log in, my password wouldn't work, and now I don't know what to do. It is a Vaio running Vista.

It's still asleep, even no the computer is on it's still in that sleep mode, when the computer wakes from sleep mode just like us it takes time to wake up and remember things, so what i do to wake myself up in the morning is have a cold shower, so just cold boot the laptop, insert your password again and you will get access.

In the event you don't get access, well what can I say really

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g.

Your laptop might have Hypobaropathy ...

It all depends on the length of time the laptop was left there, and the actual height of the landing! :^0

Go back to the landing and wait for the other person to show up. You have each others laptop. :-)
