Auto-Lock windows 2000 Pro/Server

Is there a way to automatically lock your windows 2000 machine when you leave your station?  I know that some laptops do it.  When they go on standby you have to press ctrl-alt delete to log back on.  This is done automaticlly.  You don't need to lock it yourself. Would anyone know how to do this automatically? (And i don't want to do it through a screen saver).

Thanks in advance.

Control Panel -> Power Options

Set a time for the computer to go to Standby mode
Then click on the Advanced tab, and check "Prompt for password when computer goes off standby"

Upon looking at my message that says "Grade B", i must appoligize.  I wanted to give you an A because the answer was direct and precise.  If there is a way to change this, I cannot see it.  If you know how, let me know and i will change it quickly.  Again, i appoligize.
