    I'm sorry, I don't see the value of your request - it doesn't make much sense. Why do you want staff to have to log in twice (ie. once into windows, and once into SIMS)?

    I can see why. It's probably because the staff leave themselves logged in and walk away from the machines!

    With a single login students can still get into SIMS simply by clicking OK. With separate logins they may have access to the PC as the teacher but they probably don't know the password to get into SIMS.

    Big stick AUP coupled with enforced DPA compliance is required in schools but is not always applied.

    Then it isn't a technical problem that needs solving. It is a user problem. Even if people have to log in twice, that doesn't stop them leaving SIMS.net open on their computer and walking away.

    Agreed! You're preaching to the converted chum.

    I was just putting forward a scenario that may have lead to the request.
