I need to lock my desktop so that no one can do anything until a password is entered, that includes logout. I'm in a class where there is not enough computers for the students and every time I get up I risk someone taking my seat.

Does anyone know a safe way, either through a batch file or a safe program where I can lock everything up until a passwords entered?

I am sorry I don't have an answer, but I would also be interested in knowing how to do this.

Well that certainly doesn't sound fair to the rest of the class does it?
I'm also sure that the school would not allow such things
