    Like whenever I wipe down my keyboard on my MacBook. I always think how convinient that would be to have a keyboard lock because I don't feel like shutting down to do a wipe down. Is there such a thing?

    1. Turn off your computer
    2. Lock the screen
    3. Logout

    How do you lock the screen?

    Logout would be a good semi solution.

    You have to enable the menu bar item for Keychain Access in it's preferences.

    That or turn on the screen saver password and turn the screen saver on with a hot corner.
