How to Unlock Mac Stuck on Screen Saver

This document details a method for unlocking a Mac when it's stuck on the screen saver.

To lock/unlock a Mac, you can do either of the following:

1. On an iMac, press "Control+Shift+Eject."

2. For MacBooks, press "Control+Shift+Power."

This generally gets a Mac working again when it gets stuck on screen saver.
