Does anyone know of a keyboard shortcut to go to the Login Window (fast user switching) like the Win+L combination for Windows XP?

Or perhaps a keyboard shortcut to lock the machine, like CTRL+ALT+DEL for Windows 2000/XP?

I've been searching for what seems like hours, and I can't find anything.

I've been looking for this functionality for a long time too. I just stumbled across this site which might give you some insight on how to do it. A reader posted in the comments section on how to map a key to a shell script.

Hope it helps,

I found this thread by searching google.

Since WinSwitch didn't load properly in Lopard (you had to manually activate the menuextra) and doesn't work at all with Snow Leopard, are there any alternatives? :(

lock mechine when you are not available in your work place

For locking mechine we can go for this steps

system preference->security->check require password after sleep.
Now we can put our mechine on sleep. we can use option+command+eject for sleep. Now it will ask password if you want to awake.

You can use Alfred and the keyword "lock" to lock the screen. This keeps your hands on the keyboard.
