    Sometimes I like to wonder how the story would go if some common mistakes were made (e.g. your/you're misuse). This is one of those stories that get pretty hilarious after this. Now, read again this story but in 4th point swap first "your" with "you're". Then continue reading.

    To be honest - I have ever imagined you as 3yo in that picture.

    Man, I like your story. But this is not Facebook and I do not want to see pictures of your unguilty children. Devrant is on the internet too. You know what kind of people there are...

    @Russian surprisingly, my other MacBook makes it difficult to lock via the keyboard. Any good ideas there ?

    My honest answer would be not to buy MacBook :S I don't and never liked the high price tag for kinda outdated hardware.

    But a helpful answer would be:
    1. If you're using Windows on Mac it should be (Command + L)
    2. For Linux on Mac (Control + Option + L)
    3. MacOS apparently requires you to turn this feature on iirc. System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General and check 'Require password'. After that you should be able to press the Right CTRL + Right Shift + (Eject or Power)

    Another reason I don't like Mac hardware 'its different in a way I don't seem to appreciate'.

    Good luck man :)
