Option+Command+Eject will put your Mac to sleep. Shift+Control+Eject will put your display to sleep. If you want to sleep the entire Mac, then you can use yours. But you don't need to go that far to lock your Mac. I never sleep my Mac (because I access it from other devices all the time) so I use Option+Control+Eject.
Great tips - I like to have the keychain menulet in the menu bar and then I can just click on that and select Lock Screen
Great tutorial as usual. Locking the screen is essential in business, proprietary information must be kept confidential and Ive always just closed my book. This is great. Tks.
LOL. I love how you say "You still need a... Hope you find this useful"
As always, great video.
The clip got cut off. "to enter your password again" is all I said.
Good tip again, only I'm wondering what the difference is with what I always do and that's ALT-CMD-EJECT.
That also puts the computer to sleep and if you have switched on the option "ask immediately for password", it does the same I think??
Keep up the good work!
