I have an issue with Mac OS X.

In security and privacy in the system prefs. I have set that the user is required to enter the password to unlock the screensaver.

It works as it should. After 15 minutes the screensaver kicks in and to go back in the session I need to enter that user's password. However I would like to change user, per haps login in as admin, but there is no way out.

Is there a way to change user on that login window?

I am taking about this window: http://www.amsys.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/osx-sleep.png

On this window, is it possible to change user?

Actually I found the answer thank you.

In order to see the switch user button in the screensaver login window you need to check the 'show fast user switching menu' option in the system preferences. (Under the User and Group tab)

Thanks for your help COLGeek
