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.

BBEdit 6.1.1 Addresses Conflicts, Fixes Bugs

Send Article to a Friend

BBEdit 6.1.1 Addresses Conflicts, Fixes Bugs -- Less than a week after releasing BBEdit 6.1, Bare Bones Software has issued a minor update to fix crashes caused by bugs in St. Clair Software's Screen Catcher 2.3.3 and earlier (an update to 2.3.4 is already available) and Logitech's MouseWare 3.5.1 and earlier. Also fixed in BBEdit 6.1.1 are a crash related to bringing up the Forms/Button dialog, an About box drawing glitch, and a bug in which using root addressing for a URL incorrectly added an extra slash. The update is free and recommended for all users of BBEdit 6.0 and higher. Bare Bones has released updaters for both BBEdit 6.0.x (8.3 MB) and 6.1 (1.3 MB). [ACE]
