Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.

Shockwave Released

Send Article to a Friend

Shockwave Released -- Macromedia has released final versions of Shockwave for Director 4.0 Plug-Ins, and says it's hard at work on Shockwave for Director 5.0. Macromedia has also released a beta Shockwave plug-in for FreeHand, which allows viewing and manipulation of scalable vector graphics. As with previous releases, Shockwave plug-ins want plenty of memory, and reports on stability remain mixed. [GD]
