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.

Fluid 1.8.2

Send Article to a Friend

Todd Ditchendorf has released version 1.8.2 of Fluid, the site-specific browser that enables you to turn Web apps and sites into Mac apps. The update improves support for both multiple displays and userscripts, and ensures that Web Page Zoom persists across launches. It also fixes JavaScript and CSS syntax highlighting, as well as some code completion features in the Userscript and Userstyle editors — two features that become available when you purchase a full license for $4.99. A Fluid license also enables you to create apps with separate cookie storage and pin apps to the menu bar. (Free or $4.99 new, free update, 3.5 MB, release notes)
