Using your mobile phone to automate proximity computer actions

A really interesting idea with lots of potential: using the Bluetooth device in your mobile phone your computer detects when you leave your desk or arrive back at your desk and takes pre-programmed actions, such as locking/unlocking the screen, performing backups, etc.

Integrating it with a clock and calender could lead to other possible applications such as auto-emailing people when you are headed to a meeting, emailing/IMing the wife when you are heading home, etc.
