    I am wondering if there is any way to set my laptop in Vista so that when I
    close the lid it automatically locks the computer, forcing anyone who wants
    to use it to type in a password. Thanks.

  2. Yes, it's in the power options.

    Go to Control Panel\Power Options and click on "Chose what closing the lid
    does". Make your choices, and also choose "Require a password", under
    "Password protection on wakeup" (Save changes).
