    It's a 'security device' - putting your password in it will lock your pc while you are away from it, and then you put your password in again to unlock it when you get back, basically to stop prying eyes and wandering fingers... :p:

    CTRL + Alt + Delete > 'Lock this computer'

    OR

    Press the Windows key + L

    XP has that feature, as do all other NT OSes going back to 1992.

    Maybe this 'Winocker' is more secure? Maybe there's some other feature that the OP doesn't know about?
