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.

ChronoSync 4.4.1

Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies has updated ChronoSync to version 4.41, a maintenance release with a number of stability enhancements and bug fixes that follows the previous 4.4.0 version that introduced the company’s free InterConneX file management and file sharing app for the iPad. ChronoSync 4.4.1 addresses a problem with out-of-control CPU resource usage when ChronoSync or ChronoSyncBackgrounder were idle, enhances compatibility with InterConneX and support for AppleScript, fixes bugs related to changing targets for remote connection profiles, enhances error reporting to better explain what’s going on behind the scenes, and fixes potential crashes relating to the closing of a sync document and when losing and/or regaining connection with a target. ($40 new, free update, 27.1 MB, release notes)

The addition of InterConnex into the CS/CA mix is really valuable for any multidevice office or home. Seamless, easy access to your home folder, on the same network on all devices, and via Back to My Mac on other Macs.
