Looking for a quick way to lock your screen and put the display to sleep on Mac OS X using Quicksilver?
- Download Sleep Display.
- Extract the zip file and move SleepDisplay to your Applications folder.
- Run the SleepDisplay application at least once.
- Fire up Script Editor and enter the following code:
do shell script "/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu\\ Extras/User.menu/Contents/Resources/CGSession -suspend"
launch application "SleepDisplay"
- Save this script to a location cataloged by Quicksilver.
- Create a HotKey Trigger in Quicksilver to run the script. I use command-control-shift-S as my keystroke combination.
I’m running Mac OS 10.5.1 on an iMac and this works great!
