Lock screen with password on a per-use basis
Authored by: MotherBrain on Feb 16, '09 09:57:11AM

How about using the following shell script in automator as a bin/bash shell:

/System/Library/CoreServices/"Menu Extras"/ -suspend

I don't remember where I got this script but I added a yes/no confirmation dialog box to it explaining you will need to enter credentials to log back in.

I exported it as an application and drug it to my dock. So now I can click on it when I want to lock my computer. Simple, Sweet, Painless. :)
