Windows logo key+L locks the keyboard and mouse.
Ever wanted to lock the keyboard so your kids can't mess things up when you leave the room!.
I've been looking for a solution to this problem for some time as my 18 month old son cant keep his little fingers off my keyboard or the mouse.
Basically what happens is when I leave the room say to make a coffee he rushes over and messes around presing keys moving the mouse etc., when I come back I find he's either restarted the machine or quit out of the program I was using at the time, thus losing any work I might of been doing (AAARH!).
But!, not anymore just hold down the windows logo key and press L and it will take you straight to the logon screen, then it doesn't matter what anyone presses unless the know the password.
Quickly lock your keyboard and keep your work safe from the kids
