How do I temporarily disable my pc?

I want to temporarily make my pc seem as though it doesn't work or atleast make it unusable until I want to turn it back to normal. Could anyone help me do this please? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Hardware answers: remove the mains cable, the monitor, or the mouse and keyboard (but a determined person could find a replacement).

    Software answers: set the machine up so that a password is required to access any of the accounts. Write a program which accepts any keyboard input but displays only a blank screen until you input the password. Make sure that that is the program that runs when the computer starts up.

    If your parents can't afford you a new PC, you'd be a complete douchebag to try and fake it.

    That's a rather odd request......

    You can open your computer case and disconnect the motherboard power cable so that it will not receive any power when you push the power button.

    No unfortunately not, but you could always leave it out of power
