    Is there a way i can lock my keyboard while TWS is logged on?

    Since I use the QuoteTracker for API charting, I can't afford to logout the TWS everytime i leave for a 45mins lunch. It just screws up the charts.

    So is there a way to get around this?
    Locking the keys would do the trick...
  2. if you are using Windows NT/2000/XP, just hit CTRL+ALT+DEL, then select Lock Workstation button - should be the very first one.

    The other option is to set your screen saver up so that it requires a password to turn off

    Got it.
    Never tought of using the Windows features...

    but i am still surprised that IB TWS doesn't have its own lock.

    (btw, Thanks J. Med, your software is great!)
