    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?

    How do you do [ctrl] + [Shift] + [Eject] on a rMBP?

    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.
