Automatic Log Out on Sleep? [MacBook]

Hey!

I use my MacBook in School, and after putting it to sleep, or before leaving the room, I put it to sleep.

So I feel more secure, is there a way to make the MacBook log out, or turn on the screen lock automatically as soon as I close the screen?

Thanks

System Prefs -> Security -> check "Require password to wake this computer from sleep or screensaver"

Unfortunately it won't allow you to set them individually (i.e. only from sleep, or only from screensaver) but if the screensaver comes up too often, thus requiring your password, you can always turn up the wait interval.
