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.

5.1.10 freezes constantly, just like the previous version. imac 9.1, osx 10.6.8. No extensions to speak of. Javascript enabled, as this version of safari was supposed to fix that. May have to finally give up on Safari all together!
