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.

This issue has reached you extremely early because we're going to be enjoying ourselves on vacation back in New York State. Luckily, we've had a lot of excellent submissions from around the world, so I didn't have to kill myself to put this issue out. You can thank Murph Sewall, Mark H. Anbinder, Ken Linger, and Matt Neuburg for this issue.

Please feel free to send me mail this week if you wish, but since I will not be dialing in to check it, I won't see it until the 5th of July when we return. Incidentally, that means that we probably won't send out the 06-Jul-92 issue quite on time. It also means that submissions for that issue will be especially welcome. :-)
