Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen

When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?

Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.

Internet Explorer 2.0b3

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Explorer 2.0b3 -- Microsoft released beta 3 of Internet Explorer last week. The release includes support for Netscape plug-ins, Internet Config, and GIF animations, as well as an enhanced History feature and support for inline QuickTime movies without a plug-in. If you have a Power Mac and QuickDraw 3D, Internet Explorer also includes preliminary support for VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language); ironically, Internet Explorer now directly supports more Mac-specific technologies than Netscape Navigator. The beta can be downloaded from Microsoft's Web site, and is a little over 1 MB in size. [GD]
