Windows 7 Thread, Logoff Method? in Technical; We have an issue with how the students are logging off pc's, with the XP machines it's not been too ...

We have an issue with how the students are logging off pc's, with the XP machines it's not been too much of an issue, bar the occasional broken profile but now we are moving to Windows 7 it's becoming a bigger problem.
Rather than going to start and logoff then press ctrl-alt-del and hit enter twice and walk off. Now as i say on XP this then logs them off, mostly, but with windows 7 it locks the pc. By the end of the day we have can have 5+ users logged on to each pc.
I could disable ctrl-alt-del but that will mean loosing it off the logon screen too, anyone have any suggestions how the best way around this? Any yes we have been trying to educate them for years on how to log off.

We use group policy to disallow workstation locking for students.

How obvious, why didn't i think that before... off to GP manager to disable this option.

and then the ctrl alt del takes them straight to log off rather then lock workstation so they can still do the ctrl alt del enter enter

Dave, we have a GPO set up so that the log off is the only option on the start menu with CTRL+ALT+DEL disabled. It works well here.

they still need ctrl+alt+delete for change password option ( obviously ) and the gpo option afaik only greys out / disables the lock workstation option for students assuming you lock them out of that option.

I can only use it's been a long week waiting for my partner to go into labour as an excuse as to why i didn't realise this.
Thank you everyone for explaining just how obvious the solution was
