You didn't say what OS, but you can generally lock the computer and keyboard with a CTRL-ALT-DEL and a mouse click.

If it's XP, CTRL-ALT-DELETE followed by Enter will lock the system.

If you prefer something more specifically suited to your needs, try PawSense. It detects and blocks cat typing, and also helps train your cat to stay off the computer keyboard by playing annoying sounds when your cat gets on the keyboard.

and turn it off when you're not using it. I'd like to see your cat get online now!
