It will lock if the preboot user becomes invalid, ie if you remove them from a machine, they get disabled, login hours expire etc.
I think this also happens if the machine was booted via single boot machine recovery and the 'Do not lock workstation if no user is authenticated' option in the machine properties is not checked.
Very true. Because in that case the boot user ( noone) is never valid.
In addition to above conditions, Windows screen lock occurs also upon fresh installation of EEPC Client (i.e. during Windows session when pre-boot was created/activated).
Thanks for the answers everyone!
It is strange as the logged on user should still be valid on the laptop after the synch. That is the SB user account though, we have kept things separate from the Windows/AD. Could that be related?
I can certainly tick the 'Do not lock workstation if no user is authenticated' general option. Would that have any downside in real security terms?
