You could always use the fast user switching option, which is pretty similar to locking down a Windows box since it requires a password to get back in.

If you see your name or an outline of a person at the top right corner, then just click it and select Login Window. If not, then go to System Preferences --> Accounts --> Login Options (you may need to hit the unlock button in the lower left to activate this option). Then select Fast User Switching and you should now be able to "lock" down the computer.
