Press the windows key and "L" to lock the workstation. You will be prompted for a password.

In Task Manager, you can also click "shut down" at the top, then "Lock".

Yes there is.
But you will have to disable the Welcome Screen for that and shift to Win2000 style logon.
Goto Control Panel -> User Accounts.
In the User Accounts Window, click on "Change the way users log on of off" option.
Disable the "Use Welcome Screen" option and click the Apply Options button.
