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.

Thirteenth Annual Macworld SF Netters Dinner

Send Article to a Friend

Thirteenth Annual Macworld SF Netters Dinner -- Mark your calendars if you're going to Macworld Expo in San Francisco this week. The tireless Jon Pugh is organizing the 13th Annual Netters Dinner in the traditional style, which means it will be held at the Hunan on Sansome and Broadway on Thursday, 07-Jan-99. The cost is $17, payable only through a Kagi-based signup form linked on Jon's Netters Dinner Web page. Jon plans to attend this year to perform the ritual domain survey, so we'll all look (and listen) for him starting at 6:00 PM at the top of the escalators inside Moscone on the south side of Howard Street. After everyone has gathered, we'll make the traditional walk to the Hunan en masse. See you there! [ACE]
