Re: How to disable 'switch application'

You don't want to disable this, even if you could (I bet you can't). Why do you want to cripple the user so they cannot multitask and switch applications?

You can't disable it, its built into the OS.

Re: How to disable 'switch application'

a screensaver does usually go away after you press a key. if you need a password-screen you could use a global modal one i think.
