OSX: Padlock – Lock your Mac Screen

Padlock allows you create a shortcut key to lock your screen. Something I’ve always needed.

USD$3 or GBP£.159.

Shame it isn’t in OSX by default, but this works.

  1. I have my mac configured to require a password to return from the screensaver and an active screen corner configured to start the screensaver when I push the mouse to the top right.
    Call me a stingy git, but it does save me £1.59

    • Similarly, I set the screen saver to require password. I then sleep the screen with Control-Shift-Eject.

      Doesn’t work so well on my Macbook Air though (no eject key in the brave new world).
