Locking pages in memory is not required on 64-bit operating systems. Ref below:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190730.aspx
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187499.aspx

AWE and Lock Pages in Memory needs to be configured in 32 bit machines to make use of memory greater than 4 GB. Because 32 bit machines Windows Addressing can't access more than 4 GB and hence need to enable AWE to use memory greater than 4 GB.

Hope this clarifies.
