    Great find. This is one of those features that I miss from Windows. It doesn’t matter so much in the home however in the office it’s nice to lock my screen if I’m leaving to go to lunch.

    its weird.. in SL, when i locked, there is no screen saver, just a black black like “sleep”.

    but in lion, it show screensaver, although i don’t use any screensaver as i set it to “never”.

    how to make it look like SL, with black screen as if it was sleep?

    Anyone know how to do this in OS X High Sierra? They have removed this checkbox from the keychain preferences.

      Ugh… I just realized this too. Did you find any way to do it?
