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.

Nisus Drag & Drop

Send Article to a Friend

Nisus Drag & Drop -- Thomas Robb writes, "SoloWriter 1.3, the 'Japanized' version of Nisus, has drag & drop already! I'm not sure if Ian Shortreed, the 'Japanizer,' wrote the code on his own or if Nisus gave it to him, but it's there, according to the 1.3 literature."
