Re: Who wants a program that disables the touch screen at will?

Don't take loans and pass that off.... I can do without.

 

Also, there is already a key, it is the airplane key.

Oh, I meant payoff not loan, lol. Sorry. :)
You are right.... How could I forget it.

 

Edit: @indest: on second thought I still need one for bluetooth. There are times I don't want to disable wireless (while downloading or other things) but the bluetooth. What do you think? I would really like it if you make an option for it. :)

That is easy to do. I just need to know what hotkey it should be.

I implemented the BT key into the program but, it really doesn't work well. Personally, I can't think of another way to make this toggle possible. Sorry, don't think I can do the BT add-on at this time.

Did you try to find the registy and disable it?

How about this solution? http://superuser.com/questions/407545/scripting-macro-tools-for-bluetooth-etc-on-windows

 

I already searched like 3 hours for a solution with AHK but no luck so far... I really want this!

Find me a registry entry and we would be good.

 

Disabling/enabling is not the problem. The problem is the detection. In other words, I need to know if the device is currently enabled or disabled.

 

Else we won't be able to toggle with one key and we will require 2 keys (one to enable and one to disable).

I haven't test it yet, but it should do the trick. What you think?

***** ***** ***** ***** *****

Yoga Lock Description:

***** ***** ***** ***** *****

 

Ever wanted to go to the bathroom at Starbuck or in the Library? Afraid to leave your laptop behind? If so, this Lock was made for you.

 

Disclaimer: I shall not be held liable for any stolen property!!! As always use at your own risk and please use your brain!

 

Once activated the lock has the following potential:

  • Covers your entire screen.
  • Blocks perpetrators from accessing your desktop.
  • Prevents USB drives from being stolen, via Siren Deterrent.
  • Helps deter thieves from taking your laptop.

 

What can trigger the Lock:

  • The slightest mouse movement.
  • Removal of a USB drive.
  • Attempted power down of the computer (future goal is to suspend all attempts of powering down).
  • Change in AC status (i.e. unplugging the computer).

 

When triggered, the lock has the following potential:

  • Take a picture of the person who triggered the lock and email the picture to you (passwords are encrypted).
  • Loud siren is played.
  • Activation of any script you write. This essentially opens this feature to endless possibilities. Currently, I utilize this feature to report my computer as stolen to the prey-project's control panel (this script is not fully functional and will not be packaged with this application).

 

The upcoming version will allow the Lock to be activated via an ALT + L hotkey. It has already been coded in the next update.

Why does the program closes itself now after you close the settings?

Isn't there a menu missing in the tray? I get with right and left mouse click the same menu.

 

How do you disable and enable BT? It won't enable the BT. It keeps saying "BT off"

Even if BT is off, it won't enable it (it says ON though). BT stays off.
