Mac OS X Hints Weblog: Quickly lock your screen
Posted 03 May 2006 - 05:34 PM
I'm running a 300MHz G3 iBook, so I'd rather not have to install extra software - I need all the processing speed and RAM I can get for other things!
Thanks in advance, and sorry for bumping the thread!

Visit my blog to downloade the app:
Lock Desktop - Mac OS X Application

shortened from the full keyboard and requires a fn-ctrl-F8 +
fn-shift-ctrl-F8 - too many keys for my liking so I figure the fn-ctrl-F8 combo + using the cursor keys is good enough for me.
Hope that helps.

Learn a number of different ways to easily and quickly lock your screen. [more]
If I click on “more” it takes me to a page that says “Unauthorized”. I have tried this on various MacWorld hints and get the same results. It must be the new site and how I am registered? How can I correct this since I would love to be able to read the hints?

Install "SizzlingKeys"( www.yellowmug.com/sk4it/ - 1.5 MB) - its freeware! In the first place, it is intended to be used for iTunes (the functions for iTunes are great! - you can set keyboard shortcuts for all important functions). But you will also find an extra to set a shortcut to LOCK YOUR SCREEN! I use Option(Alt)Command(Apple)L!

Quicksilver comes with some handy scripts to do this, so now I just type Opt-Space F Enter. Easy /forums/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
