OK this may sound like a weird thing to want to do. If you have a PC that has no password associated with it and you lock it all you do is click back in and you don't need to enter in a password. Well I have built a home theater PC and I have it joined to my Domain so it has to have a password because it's a domain user.

But what I'm wanting is to lock the machine and not need to enter in the password to unlock it.
