Sometime I'd like keeping a program working even if I actually ended using the computer so anyone other can use the computer wilh his account, and let my program continue.

I know it is possible lock a session and open a new one... but it seems a overkill to me since I just need keeping a process on.

Any idea?

IIRC, you can do so by running the program in the background.

As OmegaBlue says, prefix your job with the nohup command and terminate it with an ampersand (&)
