IDEA: lock the pc after certain time (for youth house)
« on: July 05, 2006, 11:37:58 AM »
Hi!
I do my social service in a house for kids and teenagers. We got one pc for them to go online. It's 50c an hour. But I always have trouble with them "But I went online at blablabla o'clock" when their time is over. So I was looking for a tool where I can enter a password, a time in minutes and then unlock the pc. It is supposed to run for the time I entered and then lock itself, so that the kids always get exactly the time they payed for and dont always get on my nerves. What would be cool too would be if they got warned 2 mins before the pc locks itself and if they could lock it before their time is up and it shows the time left. So I can write down the time left for the next time.
I googled a lot for this but couldn't find anything. If anyone knows something like this would be cool. If someone coded exactly this for me would be super cool. Maybe I can make my boss donate ... hes a cool guy I think that could work :)
ok thanks for your support

there are some programs for this i know, but i cant remember the names..
it seems like a very good idea though - and i hope to see some replies listing some software that does it.

thank you guys. Parental lock really seems to be a good solution. Unfortunately my boss now had the brilliant idea of just setting up a egg countdown clock :( how unprofessionel
I would ve preferred a software solution
but thanks again
