    disabling pupils from locking computers

    iv looked through AD but cant find where the setting is to stop pupils for locking computers. they think its funny to lock the computers then leave them so noone else can log in.

    Bear in mind though, you want to be looking through Group Policy rather than active directory

    if you edit the student policy you can do this

    Aministrative Template - System - Ctrl+alt+del options,

    here you can remove task manager, lock computer, change password and logoff options

    We encourage kids to lock their computers if they're going to the printer or stepping away from it for a moment. We had a spate of evil children doing things to others documents while they were away from their computer.
    We get the odd one leaving their computer locked or locking it instead of logging off but we wouldn't consider it a problem here.

    Bear in the mind the 'windows key' + L will also lock the workstation

    You can diable those windows hotkeys in a GPO too if you have 2003 server.

    User setting > Windows Components > Windows Explorer > Turn off windows+X Hotkeys

    I had removed the CAD way of locking but they have still been able to do that.

    Many thanks.

    yeah I know. I just wanted to make them do a bit of background reading. Reason being that I never learn anything if I'm given the full answer
