    I'm running Leopard btw, so some of the software out there just doesn't work. Anything else that does?

    Thanks

    You can set it as a hot corner in desktop and screen saver under system preferences. (In Leopard at least)

    No problem. I was happy about this feature as well. I'm not sure if it was in Tiger, but I don't think it was. Regardless, it works like a charm.

    I think it's a new Leopard feature.

    However for anyone out there using Tiger, there's a widget that does the same thing.

    (I have Leopard, but am not upgrading until .1 comes out)

    Hot corners? Yep, it's in Tiger. My 4 yr old daughter doesn't think too kindly of the hot corners tho; once in a while, a mis-slight-of-hand affects her online games ;)

    No no, I mean the option of "SLEEP DISPLAY" being in the hot corners option box. I know that hot corners have been around since Tiger. You are right though, they can be a bit too sensitive sometimes, but I still love 'em.
