I'm wondering if there is a way to "lock" or password protect an application in the dock.
Basically, I came across this in the latest version of Vuze, where in the Preferences, you can set a password for when Vuze is "de-iconified" (clicked off of) or started for the first time. If you hide the application, it does nothing, but if you click the "x" on the active window, the next time you click on the dock icon, it requires a password.
I find this to be very handy when working in an environment where people may at times jump onto my machine to do various tasks. But, if I have music or movies downloading in Vuze, they wouldn't be able to see the activity in the application, keeping things a bit more private.
It would be nice to do this with Apple Mail as well, so a password is required to view anything in Mail.
Anyway, I imagine this would be accomplished with an AppleScript or command line entry, but I'm not sure what the most appropriate way to do this is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
