I've setup two user accounts on my tablet, one for me and one for my daughter. The only way I've found to switch accounts is to lock the tablet. However I have it setup not to lock until it has been idle for 30 minutes. This means there seems to be no way to switch users but to leave the tablet alone for said time.

Is there no quicker way to lock the tablet or switch users (widget?)? The quick settings pull-down, menu has no such option.

No, I have it set to turn off the screen only (and want to keep it this way). So did Sony remove the change user quick setting?

This whole 30-min-timeout thing is not clever.
You should better configure it (e.g. with Tasker or Unlock with WiFi app) so that, when you're at home connected with your own WiFi, there is only the unsecure lockscreen (where you just have to swipe to unlock), but when unconnected from home WiFi, the secure lockscreen appears. In either case, you then have access to the lockscreen features like user switching.
