vb.net - lock screen

I normally have this feature at work where if the PC is idle for 5 minutes to lock itself and resume at log-on.. each time I have to enter my long password and its getting annoying.. I am wondering if there is something that I can use on Windows 8 that instead of taking me to the login screen to show me the desktop and I have one click in a specific location to unlock it, if I dont click in the right place then take me to enter my password.. is this possible to do by using vb.net or c#?

The only thing that you can interact with programmatically on the lock screen are the small glyphs that can be added under the date, and there is a limit to the number that can be added there (8 if my memory is good).

The only way out is to set the delay to 15 minutes (the maximum) or never require a password, which can be set in the PC Settings under the Users tab.
