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.

CopyDoubler details

Send Article to a Friend

CopyDoubler details were lousy in last week's review. We gave the wrong AOL address and upgrade price. Sigh, that's what happens when you believe a database. The real AOL address is FIFTHGEN@aol.com and the upgrade price should be $19.95. If you snag the demo copy, which only works for three weeks, it includes an offer for $19.95 that's good until 31-Dec-93, which is the cheapest way to get CopyDoubler if you can't upgrade.
