I know how to have the music start when my computer starts, but I want it to stop when I lock my computer.

Don't know if it's possible.

1) I don't know how to put it with My Documents, etc., but you can put it with the Internet, E-mail, etc. by dragging and dropping the folder on the Start button.

2) I don't think it's possible to do every time you unlock it in XP, but you can set it to every time you log on with Scheduled Tasks.

i think (would have to look to be sure) but you can set it to play/stop with some sort of action event (like logging on or off, opening MS Word whatever). or is windows schedular not that smart?

For number one you go to My Computer > C: > Documents and Settings > <Your username> > Start Menu > And then paste the folders in there. I just tried it with My Music and it worked.
