Waiting for HOME (‘android.process.acore’) to be launched…

After starting my Android App i got the information ‘Waiting for HOME (‘android.process.acore’) to be launched…’ in the Console, but it didn’t launched it.

Go to Project->Clean… and clean your project. Wait for few seconds and then right click on the project and click run as android application once again.

This solution works for me.

Lock the Mac OS X screen

Open Keychain Access -> preferences -> tick Show Status in Menu Bar

When you click the icon in your status bar the first entry is Lock Screen. You should be able to bind a hotkey to this in System preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts.

There is also a lite tool RetourAuLogin which suspends the current user and goes back to the login window.
