I'm pretty sure this isn't possible with VBA. Applications can receive messages to track lock/unlock, but Excel hides its message pump from VBA.

Do you have any other idea to track a time when system is locked.

FYI: I don't want to use any software.

Personally, I'd write a small C# application to track it, or if I wanted it to be an add-on to Excel, I'd write it in C++. Neither of them are scripting, and both of them are about as far away from VBA as you can get.

How about a pen and paper?

What do you mean you don't want to use any software? Even the OS is "software".
