Currently Being ModeratedMar 26, 2010 8:12 PM (in response to Phil006)I also have this same question. It's really annoying to move the other person's mouse every time I switch screens! Does anyone know how to avoid this?Original MacBook Pro 15" / 2.16 Ghz C2D / 3GB RAM / 320GB HD, Mac OS X (10.6.2), I'm using the wicked awesome 1920x1200 LG lcd mod.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 26, 2010 8:52 PM (in response to Phil006)Ok, I just found out how to do this. It isn't an official solution, but it works quite well.
Simply press the power button. You will then regain control of your mouse. Hit command-tab or use the dock to switch apps. Do not click cancel until you've switched apps, or you'll be thrown back into the screen sharing. Once you're out of iChat, you can do whatever you need to do. The Mac you were sharing with will remain in the background above your desktop, so you can keep an eye on it. When you need to get back in control of the action, just click into the other Mac's screen, which is effectively an iChat window. iChat will return to the foreground, and you'll be back where you started. Good luck, and enjoy!Original MacBook Pro 15" / 2.16 Ghz C2D / 3GB RAM / 320GB HD, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

I am not in the position to test at the moment but if there is one it will be in the Window Menu when the Screen Share is active. (it will mean you have to have control of the Mouse to look and check).
