How To Lock the Lock

I have trouble getting this lock to lock. I struggle with it everytime I have to secure my laptop. Is there an instruction guide. Is there some trick? Am I supposed to position the lock in a certain diretion? Sometime I get it locked, sometimes I don't. Its a matter of hit or miss. This morning, I can't manage to get it locked.

    I have a Kensington Combination Lock #64516 -- Lock was properly set to a 4 number series and will not now open -- it is hopelessly stuck and won't detach from the computer.

    Any workarounds, or is the cable-cutter my next stop?

If this is a standard cable lock, the lock cylinder has one or two latching bolt. If they are spring loaded and are of the type that just presses and snaps on, then the locking bolt is jamming most likely due to lack of lubrication. All locks need to be lubricated periodically so that they function smoothly. A small amount of WD-40 in the cylinder (where the key is inserted) and on the back (where the locking bolts are) will normally fix this problem. Graphite lubricants will work also but can be messy, or any kind of lite machine oil would work as well. Hope this helps

    Additional info:

    I have also found a few cables that require the key to be inserted and turned prior to locking, but this may not be your case

What lock does your mobile had ? Whether it is network lock or security lock,
If security lock means get the security unlock from the mobile service provider, suppose if network lock means get the code from this site www.classicunlocking.com/sony-ericsson/rs17wp8 , it has the best instructions and methods for getting your mobile as unlocked from the network lock............

My lock started making a buzzing sound. We changed the battery, but it is still doing it.


Have you tried cycling the lock with the door open to see if you still have the buzzing?
If not, then you have probably developed a problem with the alignment between the lock mechanism and the striker plate, and the lock is struggling to move fully.

If you have the problem regardless, then it is time to contact Schlage Customer Service for further troubleshooting and possible parts replacement.

Here is the link for on-line contact:

http://consumer.schlage.com/Service-Support/Pages/ContactUs.aspx

Or you can call them directly:

Schlage Customer Service Department 1.888.805.9837.

This link will take you to the page you need, if you need the programming and installation instructions to have a look inside the lock:

http://consumer.schlage.com/Service-Support/Pages/InstructionandManuals.aspx

Then scroll down to this heading on that page:

Electronic Security-Keypad Deadbolt BE365
There's a wealth of info under that heading. You will be able to see a PDF file of the original print instructions, as well as a video of how to install the lock. This is useful because there should be a sticker to be found on the backside of the keypad, with the code number that you need to reprogram the lock. This installation video (second item down) will be useful to allow you to disassemble it and view the sticker.
The seventh item under that same header is a video which walks you through how to reprogram the keypad to your new code, using that program code that you found on the backside of the keypad.

Good luck!

Why my apple laptop is unlocked


Are you talking about a physical lock or some sort of software lock?
If you have shut down (powered off) your laptop, when you start it up you will get initial conditions for everything. If you have your preferences set to "automatic login" for the main user, that's what's going to happen. That's not very secure. If you don't want that, turn that preference off.
If that's not your question, state your question with more clarity.
