Can I lock the screen like in Windows by pressing CTL+ALT+DEL ?
I don't want ALT F1 - F7 as other users can know this.
Thanks

There are a number of screen locking programs; the classic is "xlock", which you can run from the command line if you've got it.
The interface to this and other screen lockers depends on what your desktop is. I KDE, there's a little blue "lock" icon on the task bar you can click.
