    Hi Guys,

    I had this issue:when the fast user switching is disabled and someone already login to the computer, I can not unlock or switch to another user to login. Only thing I can do is power off.( I don't have that user's password to unlock the computer).
    Can please advise is there anyway do unlock the computer without power off?

    Thank you.

    No need to bump your post. It was only 3 down from the top when you did. Your first post was on a late Sunday Night and this forum is mostly used by U.S. based people who were watching Sunday Night Football. Bumping your thread in the early A.M. did nothing for it. The unwritten rule is that it is OK to bump your post after 24 hours.

    Your only option is to get Fast User Switching enabled on that computer.
