Windows 7: I need to lock my computer and allow it to continue to use displays

I need to lock my computer and allow it to continue to use displays

I need to lock the computer but have the external displays remain active as well as the software that is using the displays. How is that possible? The computer lock built into windows turns off the displays as does the screen saver when the return to login screen option is checked. Screen saver without the login screen option keeps the applications working fine, which is what I need but I do not want unauthorized access to the machine.

Please assist.
