Can you lock your computer, and have your miners still running full speed?

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Yes. Alot of people Remote Desktop to their mining rigs. This means as soon as they close the RDP connection, it essentially locks the computer.

Not if you use a graphical screensaver - it will slow down the mining. Best is a plain black screen.
