Example 1 (Lock the Windows workstation):

This example confirms with the user that the screen will lock after 5 seconds. If the user responds with 'Yes', a timer counts down for 5000 ms (5 seconds) and the user is notified through Speech Output that the system will lock. Then, after an additional second (1000 ms), the Windows display screen is locked.
