I like to lock my screen without having it sleep.
Most people would suggest that they set in the prefernces for it to lock whenever you sleep it or if your screen saver comes on.
Instead of having to wait for the screen saver to come on or having to sleep it if you have something important up and you can't sleep it I just choose the option of Lock Screen. This is accessible if you bring up Keychain Access, go to preferences, check the 'show status in menu bar'. Quit (if you want) then from the menu bar click lock screen.
So now each time you want to walk away without having to log off or switch user or sleep.. or wait for the screen saver... I just lock the screen.
