Am I missing something here? This feature is already available in Mac OS X, since version 10.2.

Open Keychain Access, choose "Preferences…" from the Keychain Access menu and then enable "Show keychain status in menu bar". A black keychain appears with a "Lock Screen" command inside.

Or you can either press Control+Shift+Eject, as alredy mentioned.

What's wrong with Control+Shift+Eject?

2 people set 0.5 stars, but they didn't downloaded it
I don't know why they set it %)
All my app I made for own use,
and some app uploaded to inet :)


Don't be discouraged by computer nerds who can't help showing off how much trivial knowledge they know. It's their infantile way of making themselves feel good by putting someone else down. They can't appreciate that you did a nice thing by freely sharing your simplification of an obscure Mac command, so they have to criticize what they cannot appreciate, without even testing it out.

Share more stuff, whenever it pleases you. Ignore those who would try you belittle you.

How is this better than the 'Lock Screen' that the built-in Keychain provides?
Keychain Access -> Preferences -> General -> Show Status in Menu Bar
