Hoping someone on here can help with this. I have been Google'ing like crazy and have not had any success.
I have a Windows 2003 domain and have been introducing Windows 7 computers. Users running Windows 7 keep getting locked out. This seems to happen a lot overnight, as in the user goes home, comes in, docks their laptop and can't log in because their account is locked out of the domain.
From my searches, it seems there are plenty of others who are having this problem, but I have not found a concrete solution to fixing this.
Thanks for reading.

@ Bublitz - that is correct. The accounts become locked and have to be unlocked through the AD Users and Computers tool. There is a lockout policy - but what I am saying is the users are getting locked out without typing in the wrong password. For example: A user with a Windows 7 machine shuts down their laptop and goes home for the night. The following morning they dock the laptop and attempt to log in and upon typing the CORRECT password on the FIRST login attempt they are told that their account is locked out.
@ S0lo - I had not thought of trying the Resource Kit tools. The Account Lockout Status tool will probably just show me what I already know, but maybe there is another tool that might be able to show WHY the accounts are being locked out. Thanks for the suggestion.
