How to Quickly Lock Your Mac

This does the trick for me. I had set up the top left corner to start screen saver but then I started using synergy to control my windows box with my mac keyboard and this made it more difficult to move the mouse to the corner.



Even better than installing yet another app to run all the time & take up system resources, on the Security window Require a password immediately after sleep or screen saver. Then in Expose & Spaces on the Expose tab, make on of the corners "Put Display to Sleep". On my iMac I set it to the upper right. It's very fast & easy to push the cursor to the upper right corner & lock the screen. Or did Apple remove Expose & Spaces from Lion? I haven't bothered "upgrading" to Lion yet.
