Windows 7: Add sound event for Lock/Unlock computer

Add sound event for Lock/Unlock computer

Hello,

I would like to know if there is a way to play a sound when the computer is locked and/or unlocked, similar to the way a sound normally plays during log on/log off. There's no obvious way in the Sounds options window.

Thank you

It may not be obvious, but the question holds the answer. The sound is played by the 'Windows Logoff' and 'Windows Logon' events event when simply Locking and Unlocking.
