At work I have the PC's to automatic lock out after 15 minutes of inactivity. We have XP Pro PC's attached to a Windows 2000 server. We have some PC's that are shared by several users. I was testing to see if a user could logon to the PC if it was locked by another user. One PC works so that if you change the userid & password to your's you get a message saying that this will disconnect the current user & will allow you then to get on. The other PC just gives you the message that the PC is locked by that user & will not allow you to get on. I have only tried it on the two. I assume that there is some setting that controls this function but I cannot find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In order to log off the current user and log yourself in, the login ID you're using must be an administrator on the computer.
