This question already has an answer here:

When I VNC into a remote OS X machine (e.g. my office machine), the remote screen is showing everything I'm doing. It also unlocks the screen so that if I'm not watching that screen, someone can use the machine and get access to things I'd prefer them not to.

The usual method is somebody in the office pranking me by loading up a browser with cuteoverload and full screening it.

This bothers me since it isn't very secure.

Is there a way to turn off the physical screen/keyboard until I come back to the office? Or require someone to enter a password to use the remote screen/keyboard?

This question was merged with How to Screen Sharing / VNC to an iMac without waking the display? because it is an exact duplicate of that question.
