How do I make VLC pause itself when I lock my system. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium with VLC media player 2.0.8 Twoflower. I use Windows + L shortcut to lock my system and would like VLC to detect this and pause itself. Also I use Ubuntu 13.04 for work and would like to know if same can be achieved on Ubuntu.
