Go in applictions -> utilities and open 'Keychain Access'. In preferences check 'Show status in menu bar', then you will see a black padlock in the right of the task bar. To lock your screen you only need to click the padclock and select 'Lock Screen'. To lock require a password when your screen saver starts, go in 'System Preferences' -> 'Security', than check 'Require password to wake this computer from sleep or screensaver'.
