Locker allows you to quickly lock your machine with a password.

It's the perfect tool if you get interrupted often and need to step away quickly from your machine while leaving it secured from others.

Simply double click on the Locker icon in your status bar or activate press ⌃⌥⌘L on your keyboard.

When you lock your screen, Locker will simply transition you to the system standard login window. All your applications will continue to run in the background and will return when you log back in.

You can optionally start up Locker automatically each time your machine boots up. If you have a Guest account setup on your machine (or other user accounts), those people will be able to access their accounts while you're away.

You will be able to login with your system password which can be changed in System Preferences > Accounts > Change Password ...

What's New in Version 1.1

Does exactly what I want it to

The Locker Application does exactly what I want it to which is be able to use hot keys to quickly lock my screen and keep all apps running in the back ground. It's really nice because it is quick and simple to activate and I havent had any issues. Also when I lock my screen it takes me to my normal login in screen and requires that I put in my password.

Ultima version

La version actual no abre sobre Mac OS Lion 10.7.3, no ejecuta la aplicación

doesnt do what it says

all it does is log you out. its stupid. i thought i could keep my itunes playing while the screen was locked so people couldnt touch it at parties but itunes stops playing so basically its useless. just logs you out.
