Windows – Screensaver that just disables keyboard and mouse

screensaverwindows 7

Does anyone know of a way that I can lock my computer without a screensaver being shown?

I run some graphs that I like to check every now and then from a distance. But I don't want other people to have access to the computer.

I would love if there was a way to basically disable the keyboard and mouse – or activate the locked screen once any mouse or keyboard activity is detected and require a login.

Does anyone know how I could do this?

  • I believe that program called Clear Lock will do the trick if you're using one monitor.

    The Windows+L shortcut is a handy for quickly password-protecting your machine, but if you want to lock it while keeping an eye on your desktop, ClearLock will lock your desktop with a transparent layer so you can see what’s going on.

    And it can be downloaded from here

    If you don't want to run an exe file then you should check some code samples at Lock Screen Apps (by Microsoft). One caveat though, it's meant for Windows 8.
