May I ask you to be more accurate in your question ? do you mean another
user locked the session, you have to unlock it ? Call the administrator.
If it is you, I think become root and change password for that user
could do it.
I don't understand what the update did in locking... either we lock the
screen or we end a session, so which one ? :)

Don't know. It may depend on some machine components (something to add
to the kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst).
Or it may need a BIOS update (but don't do it by yourself the first time
if you are a beginner).
Best greetings, Joyce Markoll.
