I have a user who has a PC running XP SP3. However, he prefers to use a Mac keyboard so has installed one. Everything works ok apart from doing a CTRL ALT DELETE to lock/unlock the workstation (at present he has to have a second keyboard to do this!) We have tried various combinations of function keys but nothing seems to work

Can anyone advise what we need to do? Do we need 3rd party apps or can we configure a setting within XP?

I would recommend the following resource kit from Microsoft:

It will allow you to remap keys.

I'm not on a Windows box with my Mac keyboard, but off the top of my head you use: control + option + delete (you may need to use fn+delete).
