Not sure if this helps, but why not password protect your screensaver so your dear sweet nephew can't get access to your machine at all?

or you could try this click here

they won't be able to get in and you will know if they have tried!!!

If you don't unplug it and take it away, there's always a simple way around the problem.

  DieSse 23:43 15 Mar 2003

Buy one of these, and just take the key away instead.

DieSse's suggestion was perfectly sensible.

Why not make a cover that locks to fit the keyboard in, out of thin Plywood!!!!!!! ?????

Also if you have one of those under keyboard thingis that slide out make it so that you cannot get at the keyboard and put a lock on it

What!!! £98 for a keyboard?!!!!!! Think I would rather follow DieSse's forst suggestiion & unplug the keyboard & take it away :-). Or better still get yourself a cordless keyboard & lock it away somewhere.
