    Ok guys and gals, my boss came to me and asked me to learn something on a Mac. I work at a school where in the computer lab we have about 25 Mac's running OSX. She wants to know if there is a way to lock up the Mac's while she is teaching so the students can't surf the web and all that stuff. If she is at her desk is there a click of the mouse or something that will turn this feature on and off? if so what does she need to do?

    vnc to 25 machines is a huge waste of time....

    she needs to pull the plug on the router/hub/firewall where all these plug into to disconnect them from the internet.

    wow, vision is still around? it was good stuff on classic OS. i loved to fuck with people and write shit in simpletext, screen share, and play. made my computer lab monitoring fun :)

    vision is a good buy.

    the only other option is for you know shit about apple script, and i wouldnt wish that on anyone. it works well, dont get me wrong, but its got the power of java script.....its easily defeated.
