    I only see the option to make the screen saver come on. I just want to lock people out and make the screen go off.

    You can set it to a blank screensaver and have the screensaver set to lock as soon as it's activated. I have my work-issued Mac set up this way.

    Assuming you have a MBP, you can use a keyboard shortcut. If you Mac has an optical drive:

    Control+Shift+Eject

    If you don't have an optical drive:

    Control+Shift+Power

    You can also just push the power button for about a second. It will do the same thing. But pushing it too long will turn the machine off.
