Quick Keyboard Safety Tips

Most times that I move away from my computer at my desk I wonder about the prying eyes of my students. Here is a quick tip to keep them at bay. Put your computer to sleep instantly by pressing Option + Apple (Command) + Eject. When you get back press any key to wake it up.

For further security you can add a password to wake your computer from Sleep mode. Go to System Preferences and Security. Look for the 'Require Password' box and check it. The password should be your computer's admin password (ask your TRT if you don't know what it is).

Here's a few other shortcuts:

Quick Logut = Apple (Command) + Option + Shift + Q
Quick Shut Down = Control + Option + Apple (Comand) + Eject
Quick Restart = Control + Apple (Command) + Eject
