I'd like to be able to use hotkeys to run scripts when the screen is locked.
But if the computer is locked it won't run.
I'm running Win7 64.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
AutoHotKey scripts cannot take user input, or raise GUIs while the machine is locked as a security measure. As stated in the comments, you can replace the Ease of Access program with a script or batch, and, when that is run, it can take input, etc. though this opens a potential security issue depending on the functions of your script.
