Any way to freeze/lock the screen when register not taken in SIMS?
Hi all - title says it all really.
Is there any plugin available for SIMS which would allow me to lock a teacher's screen, freeze it, make it fire acid or flames or make life otherwise inconvenient for them if a register wasn't taken at the beginning of the lesson?
I think I recall hearing of something like this and I had a google but nothing decent found.
Anyone heard of anything like this?

A pop-up picture of our head threatening to replace their swivel chair with the wonky plastic one with obscene graffitti on the base would be good...
Yeah we could do with something like this!

A message from our cover manager usually does the trick here!

When I read this thread title I assumed this was to stop the kids trying find games & music when they were meant to be listening for their names.
Surely if the teachers can't be bothered to take registers then it's a management issue.

I agree with the comment above, it is a management issue and not a technical one. The school SIMS administrator should be able to tell who's done what.

Sims Learning Gateway did well in seeing teachers suddenly start taking registers and also doing reports on time!

Haha thanks all. Unfortunately it's a management issue that's now slithering its way to being made my problem. Our SIMS admin can and does tell by email daily, but incase it turns into being my headache I'd like to have an idea up my sleeve sorta thing.

Why would it become your headache as others have stated it is a management problem and should be dealt with in such a manner, if they come to you asking if there is anything you can do your answer is plain and simple...............NO! and that should be the end of it. ;D

+1 to it being a management issue and not a tech one but am sure AB Tutor / Impero or the likes can allow you to lock out the students screens whilst you are doing the register or presentations etc

I was after something that would kick the user out of sims after x amount of time if there was no activity within SIMS but no one was able to provide an answer.
