comment Automatic Windows lock at given time
Ah, I had assumed you had admin access, so I didn't originally include the control panel method in my answer. Updated the answer; thanks @DMA57361.

comment Can the volume change when I plug in headphones?
Interesting. Does that depend on the manufacturer's drivers then or what? Have you actually seen a system running windows 7 where the behavior I described doesn't happen? All the ones I've seen have done it.

comment Remote desktop in XP?
Have you recently changed the access that user has? When an administrator connects, they don't have to request permission, but standard users do have to.

comment Can the volume change when I plug in headphones?
@Robert, it's built in to Windows 7 automatically. Windows remembers the volume level for when you have an external device plugged in and when you don't separately, so plug in your headphones, and tada, there you are.

comment I want to have a batch file which run a executable file,but write some commands automatically
I'm sorry, I don't completely follow what you said there. Could you clarify? Do you want to pipe "MODELER" to vcvarsall.bat? To do that, you would do echo MODELER | vcvarsall.bat, that sends the text "MODELER" to the first input that vcvarsall.bat gives you.

comment run exe format in batch file
Were you using quotes around the path? That'll break it - the full syntax for the start command is start.exe "title" /wait path. It gets confused if you specify the path in quotes without specifying a title, because it thinks the path is the title. So, you would need to specify an arbitrary title, e.g. start "new program" /wait "C:\thing\stuff.exe".

comment Can I unlock my < insert OS here > desktop remotely?
Nice suggestion. LogMeIn would also be a good approach to the same solution, as it doesn't require configuring port forwarding or installing a VNC client elsewhere.

comment Is it a good idea to have WiFi turned on all the time?
Some routers also have the ability to configure a schedule for when the wireless radio is on or off, so you could have it automatically turn itself off at night or something if you want.

comment How to set up a Windows Vista or 7 Standard User Account?
In Vista you only get an on/off option. In Windows 7 though you can configure the level of security for UAC. If you just type "UAC" into the start menu it should be the first result ("change user account control settings"), or you can find it in the control panel. You will get a slider control which lets you set the level. grab.by/5ygJ Keep in mind that non-admin users will always see a password protected prompt for any action regardless of the security level, unless UAC is completely turned off.
