slock is the key above the home key; on an Apple A1048 USB keyboard, that is labelled F15.  I don't think the 13" Macbook Pro has that key available, so you might have to attach an external USB keyboard.

Try dmesg | less instead, or using SSH from a handy terminal emulator with scrolling windows (like from the base MacOS X) is likely to be easier...
