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.

Doh! Turned out it was just a typo - Doug accidentally typed 4.6.1 instead of 4.6.2. The text was correct otherwise.
