I'd like to use my iPhone's bluetooth capability to automatically log me out of my Windows 7 computer when I leave the room.

Is there any Windows software that can do this?

Failing this, is there some contactless security token that I can carry in my pocket?

I know could just use Win-L to log out, but I'd prefer something thats more reliable than me. – Contango Aug 28 '10 at 10:52
How would the iPhone know if you left the room though? – JFW Aug 28 '10 at 11:13
@JFW You don't carry your <insert-manufacturer> phone whenever/wherever you go ? – Sathya Aug 28 '10 at 21:06
Yes... But how would it know if you left the room or just merely walked around the room three times? – JFW Aug 29 '10 at 2:44
@JFW I'm glad that you're not in charge of anything :) – Contango Aug 31 '10 at 7:24

Check out BtProx as one option.

It locks on one of your Bluetooth devices which are paired to the the machine. When you walk away from the computer the device is disconnected and the computer is locked after timeout. It is possible to run a single application together with the lock.
