Check if remote computer is locked

Recommended Posts


Pasted from: Hey Scripting Guy!

is there any way to tell whether or not a computer actually is locked? Well, theres no foolproof way, at least not that were aware of. But ... can work, as long as:

1. The remote computer is configured to use a screensaver.

2. The workstation is automatically locked any time the screensaver is running.

3. The timeout period has elapsed and the screensaver is actually running. (For example, by default the screensaver doesnt start up until a computer has been inactive - or locked - for ten minutes.)
