    I just got PhoneMyPC last night and it works great except for one thing. Is there anyway I can lock my computer from the program on my droid? Normally i would hit the winddows button + L but I want to be able to do it from the actions menu in the program as a shortcut. It says to write the command line and I havent been able to figure it out. I've tried "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation" but the computer says "error in user32.dll missing entry: LockWorkstation". Please help!

    Hi Fanilow,

    There is a bug in the Actions feature in that it makes the parameters lower case, turning "LockWorkStation" into "lockworkstation," which of course causes a mismatch. This will be fixed in an upcoming release.

    Your options are as follows:

    1) Have it happen automatically
    * Double-click the PhoneMyPC icon in the System Tray
    * Click the Advanced tab
    * Check the box titled "Lock Workstation on Disconnect"
    This will lock the PC every time you disconnect with PhoneMyPC.

    2) Create a batch file and execute it via Actions
    * Create a batch file containing the command line you showed
    * Save the batch file to someplace simple, like "c:\lock.bat"
    * Create an action to execute this

    3) Lock it manually
    * Press Ctrl+Alt+Del via the Shortcuts menu while using your PC
    * Click the Lock Workstation button

    Please let us know if there are other options you would like (besides the bug fix in the Actions feature :)
