He still complained that this was bad for his productivity and wanted me to exclude him from that policy (ha ha, no F**ing way).

Whenever I see an unlocked computer, I quickly run notepad and type 'You have been hacked'.

All the computers on our Domain lock after 20 minutes.

It seems like something else is reducing his productivity if he can be AFK for 20 mins!

That's pretty nice of you, if you're leave your computer locked where I work you could come back to anything!

When I was still working in London I had a booked meeting with a friend in the same department - we knew each other well and were both part of a group who would go for drinks after work. Well, I went into his office but he chose to carry on chatting with one of his team, and I waited and waited - and he could see me sitting there waiting. After about ten minutes I noticed his computer was still open, so I went to MSWord and changed his autocorrect to change "department" into "monkey house". A couple of months later he was working late in the office before flying to the Netherlands the following day. Luckily he noticed that his report referred to "the audit monkey house" before he printed off the finalized document.
