Locking Workstations in MCECS Computer Labs
The following basic guidelines apply to locking workstations in general-access MCECS computer labs.
You may only lock one workstation at a time.
Limit lock times to 10-15 minutes and leave a note on the keyboard with:
- Your login name
- The time you locked the station
- The reason you locked the station
Do not lock workstations when the lab is full and there are students waiting to use a computer.
Do not lock workstations with scarce resources, like:
- Design software (Adobe Acrobat Pro, Adobe Creative Cloud – such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver)
- ECE processor boards
Be ware that we may need to reboot machines for security patches, hardware changes, or software upgrades. If we do so, your lock will be broken and your session terminated.
If there is a lab is reserved, all locked sessions will be removed.
