    Stop students from locking desktops

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone can help me with a GPO\Reg Fragment for the following scenario(s):

    a) Teachers\Staff members can lock workstations, students cannot
    b) Anyone can lock a workstation, however they can be unlocked by teachers\staff only.

    At the moment I have worked out how to stop *any* user locking the system, but ideally I would like to allow teachers to be able to lock any desktop they sit at. I understand I could have two policies, one for teacher computers and one for students however their are a few machines that are used by both.

    How to hide the start menu lock button? is the closest solution I have so far

    We are using Windows 7 across the school, and Server 2008 R2

    Thanks

    You can do this separately for teachers and students even if they use the same computers as it is a user policy not a computer policy. You should have a different user policy for staff and students so just use these to allow or disallow locking of computers.
