Log Off - Switch User - Lock Computer

I used to always use winkey-L to go to the switch user screen, so anyone could use the computer but my programs would remain open. But now I hit winkey-L and it locks the computer, no good. Now if someone else wants to use it all of my programs will be closed. Clciking start>log off>switch user doesn't even work anymore. What can I do?

Re: Log Off - Switch User - Lock Computer
