I want to password protect my mac, but I don't want to use the Multiuser feature as I'm the only that use this machine.
However, sometimes I go out for lunch and leave my mac with my work just there.
Is there a way to proctect the mac? so that noone can enter?
I saw an extension called Password Security (or something like that) I tried to install it but an error message appears saying that my diskk do not support this feature.

Password Security is a control panel for Powerbooks only, and I don't think the new ones support it but I'm not sure on that last part.

Why can't you just use the multiple users configuration and just have yourself as the user? If you don't want that get BlackWatch, its a shareware/freeware control panel screensaver with password lockouts.

Just use the multiple user control panel. You don't have to log on as a user but as the owner. It works great and you don't have to add anybody else. As you're gonna be the only user it'll work just as a password program.
