hahahaha, I was thinking in a more technical solution: Wire a mouse to give a shock on right click.

Actually, there is a software solution that may sufice you:

Back up your pinboard and restore it everytime you start X.

Do this everytime you want to backup your pinboard (that would be whenever you make a change that you want to keep):
Code:
cp /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin.bak


and add the restore commands to the /root/.xinitrc anywhere before starting rox. For example, almost at the bottom of that file.

Code:

cp /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin.bak /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin

rox -o -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin  <<---- Existing line don't add it


So, after your son finishes working on the computer you can just select "Exit to prompt" from the " Start | Shut Down " menu. and on the prompt type "startx" again.
