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.

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.
