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?

Roizen Leaves Apple -- Heidi Roizen, Apple's vice president of Developer Relations, has announced she'll be leaving Apple on 19-Feb-97 to commit more time to her family. During the last year, Heidi implemented wide-ranging changes in Apple's developer support and vastly improved communications between Apple and software developers.
