Alternative 2

If you still need processes to run but need the computer locked, if you have fast user switching enabled:

1. click on fast user switching icon/name on menu screen
2. select login window

And there ya go. You'll then have to select your username and enter a password (if you have one) in order to get back into your system.

BTW, the hint claims it's a keyboard shortcut, but if one is lifiting one's hand off of the keyboard to click on something, that's not really a keyboard shortcut now, is it?
