10.6: Sleep and lock display with hot corner
Authored by: tc60045 on Oct 01, '09 07:15:59PM

Just to re-state this for those scoring at home:

In Leopard. Security can be set to require password when screen saver kicks in. Hot corner can trigger screen saver. Therefore: hot corner locks screen.

In Snow Leopard: Security can be set to require password *after* screen saver kicks in (time set by user; convenience feature -- I love it, YMMV). Hot corner can trigger screen saver. Therefore: hot corner does *not* lock screen immediately. Yes, this is removed functionality, but trade-off for convenience.

I'm guessing someone knows a keyboard shortcut or work-around....
