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.

MODE32 Refunds

Send Article to a Friend

This is important! The refund for MODE32 from Apple ends on 31-Dec-91, so if you haven't sent in for your $100 refund, you should send your original disk to Apple at the following address. If you wait too long, too bad on you. You could return the disk, get your refund and buy a share or two of Apple stock. That way you can continue supporting Apple without passing up your $100.
