ctrl + shift + eject Say no more! Nice looking app though, but $2.99 for something already built into Lion....

Hm.... Step 1: Open System Preferences of OS X, select "Desktop & Screensaver" settings, switch to the "Screensaver" tab and click on the button "Active Corners". Now select one of 4 corners who you like to activate the screensaver and select "Screensaver on" or the hibernation for the monitor. Step 2: Open "Security" in the preferences, mark "Password needed" and setup the delay time who you prefer, like immediately or after 5 Mins. That's it. From now you can switch in your preferred corner to let lock your system. This trick is also working perfectly for closed monitors from your laptop. No idea why to buy this software. For free it's nice and a interesting helper, but from system side it's available for years without any more shortcuts.
