"simple and sweet!"
Single click to lock your desktop - allows you to leave your screensaver non-password protected while still having a very easy, single click way to lock your desktop.
help docs for command line options don't indicate '/lock' as a valid switch, but it does work - so it is just a problem with the documentation, not the program.
I created a shortcut in my quicklanch ("swoff.exe /lock") that allows me, with a single click, to lock my desktop.
This is GREAT if you don't want a password protected screensaver but still need to lock the desktop from time to time (eg, from the kids!). Turning on and off the screensaver is too tedious, so this great utility in your quicklaunch gives the same functionality with a single click!!!
Been looking for this for a while, tried many alternatives - this is by far the winner for the task I described above.
