Conveniently locks your Mac from the Dashboard

If your Notebook is left unattended it should be protected from unauthorized access. The Intic Lock Widget does this job conveniently from your Mac Dashboard. It is activated on double-click and makes your Mac show the login screen. Your computer will only resume the session after successfully keying in the correct password.
Optionally the computer can also be put to sleep mode at the same time to save battery power.
Intic Lock neatly fits into your Dashboard and will also show in your favourite color.
