Can I set a time for a macro to start automatically, while my computer is locked? (edit)

Try Scheduled Activation - set when creating the Macro or via Properties of the macro



So I am able to do this by a scheduled activiation, however I tried setting this for a time that I will be away from my computer, is there any way to make macros run while the computer is locked??

I've never tried, someone else will have to answer. This is from Help:

"Screen Savers will prevent a Timed Macro from operating correctly. Focus cannot be given to a program if a screen saver is running. Also, the security measures built into the "Lock Workstation" function of Windows NT, 2000 and XP will prevent Macro Express from executing a macro."
