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.

New Fusion Version

Send Article to a Friend

New Fusion Version -- NetObjects Fusion 1.0, software for creating Web sites, shipped in late 1996 and blazed new ground with its site-centric emphasis, including easily changed site styles for text, graphics, and navigation bars. Like the soon-to-be-released Adobe SiteMill 2.0 (look for more information next week), Fusion makes it easy to modify a site's structure, and like the recently-released CyberStudio 1.0 from GoLive Systems (see TidBITS-376), NetObjects Fusion used tables behind the scenes to enable users to place objects on Web pages freely.

Great ideas take time to refine into practical implementations, and last week NetObjects shipped Fusion 2.0, a new version that - by way of a casual look - has matured significantly. The new version has many new features including a spelling checker, support for Macintosh drag & drop, better support for frames, and the capability to import existing sites as a whole, instead of page-by-page. A 30-day trial version is available (as a 14.5 MB download) from the NetObjects Web site.

Fusion 2.0 is still rather stout: the new version requires a PowerPC-based Macintosh, wants 16 MB application RAM, and a full install takes a startling 90 MB of disk space. The expected retail price for Fusion 2.0 is $495; inside the box is a coupon for a $100 rebate, good through 31-Jul-97.
