Another one - arguably nicer - is to lock the screen (CTL-ALT-L) then
suspend. My laptop doesn't appear to have a "suspend" key sequence, so
I have to choose "Suspend" from the tools menu at top right once the
screen is locked.

If I cared enough :-) I could probably write a script and somehow hook
it to a keystroke. I miss the old ThinkPad Fn-F4, though. It was
"suspend for a dozen generations of ThinkPad, but it's "Mute Mic" on
this new laptop.

Regards, K.

PS: Colin: I'm running 15.10, fully updated.
