ScreenSaver security issues

Some operating systems disable the CTRL-ALT-DEL sequence when a password protected screen saver is in use. Using CTRL-ALT-DEL twice on a BeOS password protected screen saver will reboot the system. Unless you’ve got BeChec kPoint or some other such utility installed, password protecting your BeOS machine via the screen saver is only partially useful — clever users will still be able to get into your system.
