    Hi Alexander,

    Why don't you disable feature "Stop tracking when PC is locked" in Windows client? This will prevent stopping time when your windows machine is locked.

    Because it is a very good feature for single computer user case, when timer is forgotten to be stopped. Do not want to lose it just because I have multiple clients on a couple occasions per week. It seemed natural that the session which initiated the timer would be the one in control.

    Understandably, its a difficult synchronization problem to solve with web client, to see if it really is the one which should have priority for session timeout.

    Ok, got you idea. Yes, multi-session would be now a bit tricky with side-effects like yours. 

    I will log this into our backlog for future releases, but I am afraid it is not high prio for us for the time being.

    No problem. Not a major show stopper here. I'll try to deliberately lock one of computers ahead of time so that automated lock does not override actually active session.  Just thought I'd put it out there, because introduction of web client in v4 opens up these kinds of hybrid use cases.
