    Anyone? No one else has to deal with safety issues around using a laptop in a moving vehicle?

    Don't use the laptop in a moving vehicle then. ..

    We're actually looking for something similar in some company vehicles. We want something that will either disable the video on a laptop or put on a blank screen saver when the vehicle is in motion, so glancing at the screens aren't a safety issue while going down the road.

    Anyone know a product or device that will do this?

    This will be on different models and manufacturers of laptops, depending on what we bought at the time and the employee's preference.
