    I live in a shared house, when I leave my laptop in a room unattended my
    housemates or visiters always seem to end up using my laptop closing programs
    or websites that I am currently using/viewing. Seen as how I always close my
    laptops lid if I leave it, is there anyway I can set windows to lock instead
    of sleeping when the lid is closed?

    I can't see a wait to have it lock when you close the lid, but you can set
    it to need a password when resuming from sleep...

    Control Panel (Classic), Power Options, System Settings, Choose what closing
    the lid does...
