    Here's how to enable if it has been locally disabled. If a domain Group Policy has disabled it then this will have no effect.
    Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc -> User Configuration -> Administrative
    Templates -> System -> Ctrl + Alt + Del Options. Set Remove Lock Computer to
    Disabled and click OK.
    Here are a couple of shortcuts you can use.
