SLOCK(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      SLOCK(1)

NAME
     slock -- simple X screen locker

SYNOPSIS
     slock [-v]	[cmd [arg ...]]

DESCRIPTION
     slock is a	simple X screen	locker.	If provided, cmd [arg ...] is executed
     after the screen has been locked.

OPTIONS
     -v	     Print version information to stdout and exit.

SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS
     To	make sure a locked screen can not be bypassed by switching VTs or
     killing the X server with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, it is recommended to	dis-
     able both in xorg.conf(5) for maximum security:

     Section "ServerFlags"
	     Option "DontVTSwitch" "True"
	     Option "DontZap"	   "True"
     EndSection

EXAMPLES
     $ slock /usr/sbin/s2ram

CUSTOMIZATION
     slock can be customized by	creating a custom config.h from	config.def.h
     and (re)compiling the source code.	This keeps it fast, secure and simple.
