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.

Smile has released PDFpen and PDFpenPro 5.2.4, which come very hot on the virtual heels of 5.2.3. New in 5.2.3 was AppleScript support for creating PDFs from HTML (in the Pro edition only), as well as a fix for an issue with performing Correct Text after saving a document. The subsequent 5.2.4 release corrected scripting functionality unintentionally broken with 5.2.3. ($59.95/$99.95 new, free update, 41 MB)

This a great application even though Preview has improved, permitting you to rearrange the pages in a PDF and even access your scanner. It is faster and more agile than Adobe's Acrobat.
