Why not just use system features
Authored by: MacParc on Feb 13, '09 10:59:59AM

Open Keychain Access.app (within the "Utilities" folder).

Go to ->"Preferences…" ->"General" and activate the "Show Status in Menu Bar" option.

The keychain menu item offers "Lock Screen" which is exactly what you wanted: an occasional password protected screen.

I have found the Lock Screen from the Keychain menu item to be buggy, and I don't like the extra clutter in my menu bar for just the one function
