How to lock Windows XP when Idle

Go to Start –> Control Panel

Open up Scheduled Tasks

Click on File –> New –> Scheduled Tasks

Name it whatever you like, I named it Auto Lock

Open up Auto Lock Under the Task Tab, add the following to the Run: Textbox

%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation

Click on the Schedule Tab

Under Schedule Task: drop down menu, select When Idle

On the Schedule Task When Idle option, set an appropriate Idle time, I set it as 10 Minute(s)

Click Apply, and you will have a popup to add password. Type in the password and confirm it. (I use the same password as my XP login password)

That’s it, It should auto lock your PC after it reaches the set idle time.
