Lock screen with password on a per-use basis
Authored by: bluebeachram on Feb 13, '09 08:01:48AM

A simpler solution is to just use a combination of Butler [manytricks.com] and MacLock [eternalstorms.at]. By using these you can assign a hotkey, or a separate button (in a dockling) to lock your computer. MacLock also lets you keep all of your windows and programs running and in the same place as they were before.

So does the terminal Suspend session command. ;)
I actually use the Applescript version (with only the Terminal command in it) and assign it to a keyboard shortcut with Quicksilver. Buttler works as well.
