    A pretty nice feature I'm used to with Linux is that when my screen shuts off/suspends, it'll lock the session, while still keeping the computer on.

    Was curious if anyone knows how or if such a thing is possible on Windows? The only setting I saw was the ability to lock the session when the entire computer was suspended.

    You could set the Blank screensaver. You can opt to lock the system when it kicks in. The Standby/Suspend works in addition to that.
