Startup Characteristics

When leaving your laptop unattended, Laptop LockWare is a theft-protection software and an alarm system specifically designed for the library, office or public workstation (e.g. train). The application does not require any additional hardware, as after activation LockWare continuously monitors your power cable connection, hence nobody can remove your laptop from the workspace without triggering various customizable alarms and notifications.
