How to lock screen?

Running Snow Leopard and would like a quick way to lock my screen if I need to walk away from my Mac.

Are there any recommended free Apps that allow me to password lock the Mac screen?

Hey, have you tried using the basic system preferences?

Open System Preferences > click Mission Control > Hot Corners... > And then you can set specific commands for corners.

This allows you to quickly lock your screen just by moving your mouse to a corner of the screen (any corner you desire/choose).

Padlock from Mizage helps you lock your screen with a hokey and helps configure your system correctly for good security.
