Steam works just fine in offline mode for me. Make sure you don't have any ethernet cable plugged in. Steam is kinda picky about that.

Just unplug it for a moment when trying to start steam, then once it's started, plug it back in.

I don't even bother doing that at school. Our computers have this software where the administrator can watch everything you're doing and if he sees you doing something you shouldn't, he can kick you off or even take over your computer and close it all for you. Hell, he can even lock it so you can only get a certain program when you log on.

Besides, if I want to play games, I'd play at home.
