    ...although the question seems to be not directed to me, but perhaps u can do it from 'Power Options' (powercfg.cpl), system standby ---> and checking 'Prompt for password...' in 'Advanced Tab'

    lol.. i never thought that i wud see a gurl in a place like this... and i always thought of some guy enjoying his time by a gurls ID...!!

    well the solution u said wud work,but only after making the PC enter standby mode..i dont want it.
    Thanx for the reply though...

    Anyways have found a workaround .. through screensaver..have set the time as 10mins and enabled the option "ask for password" .. so kindof working for me!

    If you don't want to run screensaver then another way can be by running a scheduled task which runs after 10 minutes of idle time. The task to run would be
    Code:
    %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation 
    As far as Puja's comment about the way the question is asked, I must say that a similar situation arose a few months ago on Linux Users Group, Delhi as well. We all were told to read the following document.
    http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Encourage-Women-Linux-HOWTO/
    Even though it is related to Linux and has been written by LinuxChix group but it still is very relevant to the general technology environment.
