    Is it possible for W2K to be set so it locks the computer automatically after a certain length of inactivity? I'm not talking about screensavers coming on: I'm after a proper lock.

    There's nothing wrong with a screensaver lock. If you think so what is it? You could also use APM to place the monitor in standby mode with a password.
