    Hey fellas .. is there anyway to unlock a screen saver which is passworded without restarting the system? i.e when u walk into a department store, and they have system's on display, and you want to examine the system specs, but the system has a screensaver password ... is there a key sequence around this ??

    I really like the way you worded it, but...

    DON'T ASK... :eek: :cool:






    There is always some sort of paper/pamphlet/printout, etc... with the system's specs. :p

    rebooting the system .. defeats the purpose of beating the screen saver password .. .this has to be done while he stands next to me. So he can faint .. ROFL

    My local PC Word using some weird demo program to keep users out... no screen saver or nothing... is pretty easy to get out off with a simple ctrl+alt+del -> end task...

    But the funny thing is... *all* the systems have a sticky label on the side of them with the CD-Key for the installation of windows xp on the system... as well as nero and a few other progs... was going to spot it out to the salesman... but then i though.. naah :p
