Lock screen with password on a per-use basis
Authored by: ferret-slayer on Feb 13, '09 09:00:56AM
I just use SizzlingKeys, which lets me assign a key-combo to background my current session, and switch to the login screen. This leaves everything running, and is more practical than a screen-lock if others may be borrowing your computer.

SizzlingKeys is shareware, but this (and most other) functions are available without payment.

The command is "Lock Computer" in the "Extras" tab.
This works regardless of whether you have Fast User Switching enabled.
