JSI Tip 3590. How do I lock my clients workstation when they go home?

If your clients regularly go home and fail to lock their workstation, do it for them:

1. Schedule notepad on your workstation. Set it for daily at quitting time. Open the Properties and set the run line to
    C:\WINNT\system32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation.

2. On the Settings tab:

        Only start the task if the computer has been idle for 10 minutes.

        If the computer has not been idle for that long, retry for up to 720 minutes.

3. Copy /paste the .job file to the remote computer.
