    I have Keychain's status displayed on the menu bar with its lock icon. When I select Lock Screen it shuts off my display. I don't want that. I want it to go straight to the screen saver when I select Lock Screen. How do I do that?

    Yeah, I noticed that too - but I imagine it's a bug, not an intentional feature.

    any updates on this? 10.6.1 did not solve it.

    Not a solution but a good alternative:

    Set a Hot Corner to activate the screensaver. I have the bottom left - so when I want to lock my Mac, whack the cursor to the bottom left.

    Was there ever a solution for this? Looks like it's a "Feature" not a bug :(
