    I don't believe that we cannot, I think that we do not because we don't want multiple users logging onto the PCs endlessly now and its always been set to off historically on our network, areas like our library were a favourite for people locking workstations and going off to class.

    We have impero in place though which helps us with the logging people off if need be, but obviously we need to log onto another PC then to log them off, whereas with XP one logon and it logged them off.

    Also with Impero v3 can unlock the screen with logging them out but of course need to run Impero to do it so still need to login into a machine etc..

    Some guy posts a YouTube video, provides no source code, no demo and your believe the guy can actually do this stuff??

    Has anybody actually used this library or seen it used anywhere buy on a YouTube video?

    The video is a great only if you want a good laugh!

    We use a little hta script that sends a remote logoff command to the workstation if a teacher decides to lock it and not come back.

    Works very nicely

    So im guessing noone has come up with anything other than running a command from a different computer?

    The problem i have is that i come across this problem at the other end of the school from my computer and would be very useful if we had something that could unlock or log off the user so that someone else could log on instead as our teachers tend to leave their computers locked rather than logging off, the next teacher that comes to teach then has to turn pc off and on before they can use.

    Unless you have fast user switching enabled (which most people don't), the only other way is to use a different machine.

    If we're away from our desk when we find a locked PC, we just logon to the nearest free computer to run the script.
    I'm sure if we had enough time, we could even get it to unlock via our phones as long as we went to a webpage that could run the WMI command to logoff.
