Changing message on black /endlock screen

Hi Sean,

Is it possible to change the "inquisit" blackscreen message to something else? I would like to tell subject to not touch the computer anymore, do not press start, dont check email, that kind of thing.

The problem is that people try to get out of the black screen by hitting the windows key, which brings up the start menu, and locks the machine, so that you have to ctrl-alt-del out.

Hi there,
There isn't currently a way to customize the message, but it wouldn't be difficult to add one. I'll put this on the list.

We'll also look into whether we can handle this situation more gracefully so that Ctrl+Alt+Del isn't necessary.

Thanks,
Sean
