I am quite unimpressed with this developers update approach.

I bought LockScreen when it came out and stopped using it after only a week or two. It was unreliable when trying to unlock, sometimes failing to recognise the pass pattern.

Now I see there is a new version in the Mac App Store but no upgrade path. In fact "LockScreen" is no longer available and there is a 'new' app called "LockScreen 2". Sure, it's only a couple of bucks but it's also been a scant three months since the first version that, in my experience, didn't work properly.

You can do this for free by using Keychain Access. Open Keychain Access (in your Utilities Folder, which is in your Applications folder), and go to preferences. Check the box for Show Status in Menu Bar. You will now see a Padlock in your Menu Bar, click and hold, you will now see a Lock Screen option, select and release. Your screen will now lock, and will need your computer password to open.

Even easier - set your computer to prompt for password when waking screensaver. Set one corner as hot spot for starting screensaver and place the cursor there every time you want to lock your machine.

These solutions do not work if you do not use a password for the computer. I need an independent program within which I can set a separate password.

So you don't want to have a computer password but are willing to have a 3rd party app lock your computer with a password? Not sure I follow.

Correct. I do not want a permanent computer password since I rarely need a password and it is extremely inconvenient to be forced to use a computer password a zillion times for authentications. LockScreen2 works great for me for the few times I want to lock the screen.

Great program. I was lucky to get it for free when it was first launched at the App Store :)

Interesting idea, but not so useful if anyone can just unlock your Mac! Also accidental unlocking may occur if cleaning the keyboard!
