    The question is always .... private for whom ....

    Mostly this is the answer as well ..... just create separate user accounts and privacy is guaranteed.

    Unless I am missing something.

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    It would be just as easy to either log off, or lock your workstation.

    i know but incase i forget.. is there no way to do this? id be a bit disappointed if not... surely the ability to password protect a folder is a fairly simple thing?

    Activate a screen saver after x minutes and set security to require a password to unlock screen saver can also help in case you ' forget ' to lock your account before you leave you Mac.
