What is the equivalent to Windows "Switch Users"?

The title explains it. I want to password protect my stuff when I'm away for a couple of minutes, but the only option I see is to log off completely! I don't want that to happen, because I want some applications to still run(like AIM).
You guys have helped me so much lately, and I appreciate it!

Are you using multiply users? If so then in the accounts tab in System Prefs, check off quick user switching, and a menu will appear in the upper right of the menubar, and you can go to the login window.Blog and Photo Gallery: http://philolin.me/

Go into system preferences/dashboard & exposé.
Set a hot corner to activate your screensaver (mine's bottom left).
Go back into system preferences, then go to security. Check "require password to wake this computer from sleep or screensaver".www.martinsketchley.co.uk

i'd go the screensaver route as mentioned above...but i beileve hopping over to the login window will still let you stay on aim....you will need a abuddy to watch your online status in order to fully check it out though

Yeah I think logs you off for a sec before the network connection kicks back in. Shame about that.
