    In windows 2000 professional you were able to lock your computer with "control/alt/del and then choose lock the computer. Does windows xp have this anywhere?

    You can press the Windows Key and 'L', and it will take you to the password screen where you log on. (As long as you've set a password on your user account.)

    It will leave your programs and process' running also.
