As a Mac-newbie thanks for pointing this out!  On our machine (OS 8.1)
the key combination is actually Command-Shift-["top" 3] (where ["top" 3]
indicates the non-keypad 3) rather than the "4" on your machine.  This is
independent of the state of the caps lock and either of the Command or
Shift keys can be used.
     Until now I have used the Shareware program, FlashIt, which has
the advantage that only a portion of the screen need be saved.
     You learn something new every day...
