    Hi namsuk_kang,

    I would love to help you with your problem. Could you please explain which lock it is you're refering to.

    Is it the lock in the accounts section of system preferences?

    I look forward to helping you further,

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.

Vista Remote logoff problem


the computer most likely goes into screensaver and it is set to logout / lock the computer everytime the screensaver is opened.

right click on your desktop select personalize, look in the screensaver settings. Take the Check out from the box that says, On resume display login screen.

now the computer wont sign you out every time the screensaver comes on.

I cant unlock my apple laptop


first, reboot your computer. then, hold down the apple key and the "s" key after you have heard the chime. when you get the text prompt enter these terminal commands to make a new administrator account (be sure to hit return or enter after each line):
  • mount -uw /
  • rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
  • shutdown -h now
after rebooting your computer, you should have a new administrator account. you can then proceed to delete the old one and you're set

hope this helps ;-)
