In OS X Mavericks, Hold down the Control key whilst pressing the power button to bring up this menu to quickly choose one of these options. To disable the power button sleep feature, read this blog.

This feature has been tested using OS X v I have always used the keychain menubar icon to lock the screen.

Why use multiple users

In a lab this is a pain for people because the screen is dark and if someone temporarily left and stayed logged in another user sits down and wakes the screen and someone is logged in so they move to another and the same thing. With the screensaver active when its locked you can see that someone is logged in then visually and not pick that computer then.

I have a custom screensaver made that slowly flashes the username of who is logged in and our school logo flying around that was built with Quartz Composer.

Anyway, I finally found a way to get the screensaver to kick back in instead of sleeping the screen! I think a bug report response is how I found out about it or Apple seed. But here is the command to force the screen saver on when locking the screen using the Keychain lock instead of sleeping the screen.


Fast User Switching not working Lion GM

My icon appears everywhere else, except where it should be all the time at the menu bar. Any thoughts on this? The menu bar for fast user switching is designed to show the generic user silhouette and not your custom user icons. Sometimes I seem to expect too much from my system.
