Perfect in its simplicity! Cmd-L now locks my screen.

Perfect in its simplicity! Cmd-L now locks my screen. I was using OS X screensaver security and Keychain to lock my screen, but it’s always been a slight annoyance to have no keyboard shortcut like Win-L on windows systems. This app is great and gives me the ability to lock my screen in 1/2 a second with no mousing and no screensaver lock-out.

(P.S. devs - there’s a typo in the Prefs. Auto Controll should be Auto Control.)

Just what I was looking for!

Coming from Windows, I’m so used to hitting Win-L before I walk away from my computer to lock it. This app lets me lock my Mac with Cmd-L, which is just as good. I’m really surprised Apple doesn’t have a lock option in the Apple menu in the corner, but at least I can get it back now.

It's ok

Does what it says it would do, but I was unimpressed with the app. I found a much better solution by enabling hot corners, and set to require password immediately, that way I lock my screen with one quick movement of my cursor, rather than at least two keystrokes. Not sure what could have impressed me, but at least I have one less icon on my status bar.
