I need to create a Windows Service that will capture when a user locks and unlocks their desktop session.  Also, I need to capture the username.  I know how to do this using a regular application, just not a Windows Service.

Sorry Ragi, that solution won't apply, its for a Windows Application, not a Service.  It relies on WndProc.

Found the solution.  I am overriding the following event in my service:


protected override void OnSessionChange(SessionChangeDescription changeDescription)
{
switch (changeDescription.Reason)
            {
                case SessionChangeReason.SessionLogon:
                    //Logon
                    break;
                case SessionChangeReason.SessionLogoff:
                    //Logoff
                    break;
                case SessionChangeReason.RemoteConnect:
                    //Remote Connect
                    break;
                case SessionChangeReason.RemoteDisconnect:
                    //Remote Disconnect
                    break;
                case SessionChangeReason.SessionLock:
                    //lock
                    break;
                case SessionChangeReason.SessionUnlock:
                    //Unlock
                    break;
                default:
                    break;
            }
}
