QuickLock allows users to quickly lock his or her system without interrupting any programs or processes. QuickLock lives in the menu bar and is represented with a simple padlock icon. Clicking on its icon in the menu bar will reveal a drop-down menu consisting of the following choices: QuickLock, Screen Saver, Sleep, Restart and Shut Down. Although some of these options are available from other menus or key combinations, the QuickLock selections do not require confirmation and consolidate the options into a single list.

Running 10.8.2 on a Retina MBP. Installed this after seeing a review in LifeHacker.

Locks the screen with a simple shortcut. But once locked, the unlock process is not clear. No on-screen button ... after a few experiments I could click to shutdown. I didn't want that. And the button seemed to do nothing. The battery meter wasn't much use. So eventually, I found that simply typing the password from the locked screen did the trick.

However, I was not able to find a way to click the menubar icon and access the submenu settings. The help video on the developer's site did not load, so no joy their.

Not bad ... but not polished. I find a quick, one-step lock useful ... not sure this is it.

Great little program. Would appreciate if question about 'run at login' could move to menu. If you don't use this option, the question being raised time and again becomes a nuisance.
