@Ramhound - Sorry if I had to edit something from the first answer, it is because I can't post a comment yet to other people's question or answer in Superuser ,only to my own questions & actually the answer is indeed partially correct (1st sentence correct & 2nd sentence incorrect) so I thought maybe I could just modify it to rectify it. I can somehow able to post a real answer but I'm tired of making another one 'cause it disagrees with the 2nd sentence of the 1st answer. That would be confusing to have 2 opposing answers, you know.
As for the real answer, it is a yes that one can locked the computer right after every end of remote connection using TeamViewer (1st sentence of the 1st answer). And it is definitely a yes, not no, that one can remotely input password at the locked screen while in remote session with TeamViewer. You can even start TeamViewer right after the startup of the computer even if you're not still logged on as a user by making sure you always keep yourself signed in on TeamViewer then add TeamViewer program as a basic task in Task Scheduler in your computer.
Here's how to add TeamViewer program as a basic task in Task Scheduler (Windows 7):
(Important note: The users must belong to the admin group which have admin rights.)
There are also programs or apps like Shutdown Start Remote app and executable program that startup / shutdown the computer or even wake it up from sleep mode and are downloadable to the computer or to wireless devices.
Here's how to set up "Shutdown Start Remote" app and application which can be installed only to an android device & computer:
(Important note: For it to work, you need to make sure the computer is always plugged in to its power supply and the internet or Wi-Fi is always available and present in all of your devices.)
I've already uploaded a video on how to do all of these: Here's a link on my Youtube channel. I recommend you to watch it on its desktop view because there are annotations that will guide you step-by-step on how to make it happen.
From all of these, you can make your computer remotely dependent and almost completely controllable by a remote device or computer. Hope that clarifies all of you who have already read this and even to those who will read this question & answer post in the future. Thank you!
