HouseCall PowerPC-Only -- When we mentioned Netopia's new HouseCall remote control product in TidBITS-483, we said it would work with a 68040 processor, based on information from Netopia. In fact, HouseCall only supports PowerPC-based systems running Mac OS 8.1 or better. Netopia has updated their product description - we apologize for any confusion. [GD]
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.
