10.6: Another way to lock your screen
Authored by: trailstrider on Jan 10, '11 09:19:11AM

This actually doesnt always work as advertised. I've got my computer set to require password from screensaver and sleep, but when locking with the keychain access or this shortcut key, it doesnt actually lock anything. the screens go blank. even when waiting an additional 30 seconds, the screen is still not locked, only blank. Hitting a key or moving the mouse brings everythign back up without asking for a password. Im not sure why this is different on my machine. But its brand new out of the box too.... go figure.
