Locking workstations! -Help

I'd like to know what books/topics, tutorials and websites I need to know in order to write an application which enables an administrator to lockunlock a certain workstation on a network.
It isn't really an assignment, more like a project, and I don't expect nor want anyone to make the program for me, just to be pointed in the right direction. Please. And if anyone thinks it's easier/more efficient to write it in another language, let me know.
This program, when completed, will probably be given to a friend of mine who owns an Internet Cafe`, if that helps.
Thank you :)

    Hi, if all computers are in one domain, and you have a Domain Admin account, you should use some remote desktop software (emco, vnc for example) that allows you to connect to any desktop of your network.. If your friend has an internet cafe, he would need this for monitoring all computers ..
    But if you want a program only to lock other workstations, take a look to API how to lock local workstation and write server-client application using winsock... Server will send a request to some workstation to lock it and when client (write it like a service) recieves this request locks current workstation.
    But remote desktop softwares sound like better way how to solve this..
