10.6: Unlock screens using any admin password
Authored by: Unsoluble on Nov 04, '10 11:48:33AM

Auto log-out is pretty unreliable, because any modal dialog will prevent it from happening. Also I'm pretty sure you can't fast-user-switch when the screen is locked; you'd have to unlock the screen before you can access the FUS menu.

Fast-user-switching is available from the screen unlock dialogue, my kids use it all the time to log into their account when I have not logged out and the screen has been locked.

Ahh, good to know! Hadn't noticed that before. Might come in handy too, thanks.

Still need to be able to see other users' accounts from within a lot of the time, especially in an MCX environment where you're trying to propagate prefs and restrictions -- just can't verify that an account is working properly until you see it for yourself.
