Hi, I just bought new macbookpro. Could you tell me how to lock mac OS in the same way as windows?
You could invoke the screensaver, or perhaps there is something you can do with the fast user switching...
I did this on my work computer because I like how on windows you can do the Windows key + L to lock it.
Basically what you do is set a key command to invoke the screen saver, and set the screen saver to have a password. Follow the directions from here: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20090831093941225
1. applications>utilities>keychain access
2. keycahin access preference
3. go to general tab, tick "Show Status in Menu Bar"
now on status bar click the lock icon to lock your screen
This. Works a treat, and you could probably assign a key command to it.
well, dont know about assigning a key, guess not..
I want this feature too.
So i search on the Mac App Store and found app name Lock Screen (SlideToUnlock)
It work exactly what i want (press Command+L anywhere to lock).
You can see demo vdo on http://bit.ly/lockscreen
I'll try this.
activate the fast user switch under accounts in system preferences and lock your Mac thru the user icon in your menubar
or, if you use alfred.app (which I always advice to use ) you could simply type "lock" and hit return (no need of the powerpack for that, you could simply use the free version)
after a cube animation, Mac OS X will go straight to your login screen without logging out.
Google Quick Search Box could do this too!
