[Desktop] Pause when PC locked - Resume when unlocked

It would be really nice if there was an option in the Spotify desktop client to pause when the computer is locked and to resume when the computer is unlocked.

 

There already exists an standalone Windows application that does this:

https://code.google.com/p/spotify-auto-pauser/

but after changes to the Spotify desktop client last autumn/winter it stopped working - and it would of course be better to have this integrated into the Spotify client.

I don't know if there is anything equivalent available for OS X users.

 

This should be optional as in some cases this preferred behavior, for example when using Spotify at the workplace and in other cases it might not be preferred...

I'd love this function as well. There is a 3rd party option for this, but it doesn't work very well.

Entering the pause button or mute is annoying 10 times a day :D
