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).

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

Hi Indest,

 

I have a minor feature request.

 

When Patch starts after a fresh boot it steals focus, so if I am typing a URL or starting an email, all of a sudden the cursor pops out of the field where I am typing.

 

Can you stop Patch from stealing focus?

 

Thanks!

Lol, you must have lots of things in your startup menu. 

 

Remind me next week. I'll try to look into it. However, we are in exam month so I can't make any promises.

Hi,

 

Thanks for this this very usefull program ! specially power plan switch :)

 

Unfortunatly i encountering a problem with touchpad (with 17.0.19 version)...when yoga is in laptop mode and i'm using this command C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState (lid open) and then restart the yoga directly in tablet mode the touchepad is not deasabled.

 

Problem doesn't occur without the patch activeted nor if i close the lid with the patch activeted (closing the lid puts yoga in suspend state)

 

Bye

 

Ps:I don't know if it's possbile but it will be great to add the feature that's switch automatically to plane mode when yoga is unplugged and screen set to low brightness (<40%)

The patch depends on the OS OnMsg calls. I use this to increase preformance and not have a program constantly asking your computer how it is doing every 2 sec. Hence what you are doing is effectively bypassing 1 system call. Now if you went from laptop back to tablet, all should work as normal.

 

Also the screen brightness can be accomplished since Windows brightness level can be set in the powerplan.

 

If others request it, I'll add airplane mode option to the program.

lol, you are late to the program.

 

On my signature, there is a program called Yoga Patch details. It is a link to an earlier post on this thread.

 

@Admins, you see, this is why I would like to edit the main post -.- ....

Indes, keep your work! But I gave back my Y2P. I have a TOSHIBA Portege Z30-A-15M Core i7 now. :)

Maybe I will try the new Yoga 3 Pro.(upcoming this month). If so I have a cool feature from the Toshiba I like to have in the Yoga too:

 

The keyboard lightning is always off by default, only if you type or if you are in a type field it goes on.

(Doesn't it sound like a cool feature? What do you think, is it possible? (I hope it's not only hardware :/)

 

Maybe this will help: http://www.autohotkey.com/board/topic/282-fn-key-on-a-notebook/
