    Is there a way to make the login screen come up after the screensaver has been on? What I'm trying to do is allow my kids to login to their account, when I haven't logged out of mine. Am I missing something, or do I always need to log out of my account when I walk away?

    In short: Enable fast user switching and then set the Mac to require a password to be entered after sleep or screensaver.

    I just tried it in Mac OS X 10.6 and could select to switch a user.

    Enable Fast User Switching

    Mac OS X 10.5


    Mac OS X 10.6


    Enable "Require password after ..."
