I have a daft problem! I am using keyboard control xtra (by
Software), to 'lock down' an application.
It is being used on laptops at events and is just needed to
form quitting the app. Unfortuhnately, I have no ide who what
environment is of these laptops as they will all be different
and used be
many different people!!
So here's the problem....
I'm getting reports back that on some of the older laptops,
after a period
of inactivity, windows is logging of back to the login screen
- the one
where you have to press ctrl+alt+delete to be able to login!
what.... ctrl+alt+del is disabled with the keyboard control
xtra! so they
have to physically unplug the PC to re-run the software!!
Does anyone know a way of preventing the login creen
appearing (I know its a
case of going to control panel and changing it, but most of
the users are a
bit computer illeterate!! and besides, they do not have admin
Any ideas or sulutions would be greatly appreciated.
[my only though, and ive not tried it yet, is to simulate a
fake mouse click
every say 10mins of inactivity?]
BuddyAPI has a command to disable the screensaver. It is the
screensaver that is coming up that asks to hit ctrl-alt-del
period of inactivity. That would probably work for you,
though it will
depend on if the user has access to change their own
screensaver. If the
non-admin users don't have the access to do that at all, then
program won't either. baDisableScreenSaver() I think it is.
Also, you could use BuddyAPI to test to see if it is the
window. If it is not, then unlock those keys.
