There is no out of the box functionality that will do this for you. 
You'll have to start by hacking the init files to start the tablet in 
the state you wish to have it in, and then start hacking on the security 
features you want in order to prevent the user from making undesirable 
state changes.

Search the archives for "kiosk" and you'll find the existing discussions 
about this topic.  Others have expressed interest, but no one has 
followed through to my knowledge.
