Great idea. I like how it's lockable, for when I have leave the desk in a hurry, so that I won't have to put the computer to sleep or log out--which takes longer since you'd have to save everything.

This is a well-done piece of software and works great on my powerbook. I especially enjoy the ability to detect my leaving through salling clicker and secure my powerbook since my pb does not come with a Apple remote. Sending SMS as a notification is just a brilliant idea while other people may be disappointed that this only works for US mobile.
Got to love great freewares. Cheers!

Great idea but needs to be able to send SMS in other countries too, also volume is quite low and not currently password protected oh and an option to auto set with screensaver start would be good too.

Got to keep the developer on his toes :) Good first release.
