      I actually had to write a knowledge base article for our first line support on exactly how to do this.

          if it was easy there would not be a point in locking it in the first place...

            As it says on the lock screen message -

            "Only user X or an administrator can unlock this workstation"

              Is this situation a requirement (ig security reasons)? You could set the GPO so anyone could unlock the screen rather than just an Admin.
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.
              1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
              2 2 1 1 2
