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.

AvantGo Releases Palm Conduit for Mac

AvantGo Releases Palm Conduit for Mac -- AvantGo, Inc. has released a Macintosh version of its AvantGo Connect software for downloading and displaying Web pages on Palm OS handheld devices. Previously, Mac users with Palm devices had been able to run the Palm OS version of AvantGo on their handhelds using synchronization software running in a Windows emulator or by connecting directly to the Internet via modem. Now AvantGo Connect for Macintosh 3.3 includes a Mac conduit that updates AvantGo's handheld channels during HotSync operations. Note that if you currently also synchronize AvantGo under Windows, you'll have to wait for a 3.3 version of the Windows software, to be released in April, in order to synchronize with both platforms. AvantGo is a 1.5 MB download; if you have an existing AvantGo account, you must proceed through the first part of the initial new user setup to get the software (but you won't need to create a new account).

The update should ease the process of reading TidBITS on Palm devices, thanks to David Charlesworth's specially constructed "TidBITS for AvantGo" page, which links to our current articles. You can also read TidBITS on the Palm using David's DOC format versions of each issue. [JLC]
