Many ways to lock your MacBook

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/31

There are [WayBack] 7 ways to lock your MacBook – CNET: When it comes to locking your Mac, you have options.

For now I’ve added the below alias to my ~/.bash_profile which only works if you have “require a password immediately after sleep or screensaver begins”. I have that enabled (with a 5 second delay, not immediate so that when I’m behind my laptop and it starts the screensaver I can still move the mouse or touch a key to keep it awake).

alias sleep-display='pmset displaysleepnow'
