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.

Send Article to a Friend

C-Command Software has updated EagleFiler, its document- and data-archiving app, to version 1.5.4 (see “EagleFiler Turns a Finder Folder Into a Snippet Keeper,” 24 February 2010). According to the release notes, EagleFiler 1.5.4 includes a slew of optimizations and bug fixes, in addition to a few new features. The app can now read data in a more efficient way from several RSS readers, including NewsRack and NetNewsWire, and can import bookmarks from a variety of sources, like Safari, Delicious, Pinboard, and others. EagleFiler 1.5.4 also includes early support for the upcoming Mac OS X Lion, where the app can run in full-screen mode. ($39.99 new from C-Command’s Web site or the Mac App Store, free update, 11.4 MB)
