Hi Oleg,

QF-Test can do a lot with a locked screen. Unfortunately for simulating
Drag&Drop QF-Test needs to use hard events and those are blocked in the locked

As a solution for this problem I see the usage of a virtual server like VMWare.
If your tests are running in a VMWare window, they are not affected by the
locking state of the host.

Moreover VMWare allows normal working on this machine in parallel to tests
being executed.

Best regards,
