You don't need extra software get this sort of functionality from MacOS X. Simply set up restricted accounts for users and you can determine which programs they can access. You can do this in the Accounts section of System Preferences (accessible under the apple menu) In the Security section of the System Preferences you can also set automatic logout after a period of inactivity. Hope someone finds this informative.

Padlock was developed because Mac OSX 'only' offers the security features that it does. Some users do not wish to have seperate user accounts on their Mac's, and even those that do would like to be able to remain logged in whilst away from their computers, or whilst someone/anyone else is using it. Thankfully, Padlock is currently protecting sensitive information and valued relationships between partners, family, employers, staff and friends. Others use it as an additional parental control.

They're too lazy to log out but yet they still put up with launching tons of programs on their computer and tediously trying to catch all sorts of security issues themselves? * making sure they can't launch the Terminal (dangerous) * Safari and every other web browser (can download new apps) * Mail (can email themselves new apps) * Xcode/REALbasic/etc. (can write new apps to do anything) * Activity Monitor and similar programs (can force quit Padlock) * and tons of other possibilities Ooookay, if you say so.
