ScreenSaver Start sits up in your menu bar allowing you to quickly start your screensaver by configuring a global hotkey. It can additionally be configured to start at login, so it's always ready when you need it.

Handy for quickly locking your screen (when your Mac is configured to lock with the screensaver) ScreenSaver Start is a useful addition to any Mac user's productivity toolkit. Useful for quickly keeping prying eyes away from sensitive information... With a quick tap on the keyboard, everything you are currently working on is quickly hidden from view.

ScreenSaver Start is available exclusively in the Mac more...

$1.99 for this... Wow...

For free, without installing third-party software, you can simply assign a hot corner for the screensaver, from the system preferences.

If you don't like it, or if you want screen-locking, simply open the 'Keychain Access' utility, from your 'Applications/Utilities' folder.
From the preferences, set 'Show keychain status in menu bar'. That's it, you can now lock your screen from your menu bar.

Both of those methods require you to use the mouse...

I saw a gap in functionality for OS X (no global hotkey support), and filled it. I could have given this away for free, as some of my other products....

but I have bills to pay too.
and unfortunately, Australia is not a cheap place to live, and I can't pay my rent with a smile. (I wish i could)

$2 here in Australia, will buy you a can of coke, which would provide perhaps 5mins worth of satisfaction. I think this utility (whilst very small and limited in function) is worth more than a can of coke. It certainly took me longer than 5mins to write the code/create the icon/update my website/submit it here, and to the App Store.

Please don't take this as an attack on your feedback, its not. (you are more than entitled to it) I just thought i'd provide my side of the story for a little balance.
