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.

Thanks to the many people who either sent me Eudora plug-in files that provide a simple interface within Eudora's Settings dialog for changing the settings I talked about in TidBITS-271 or who told me about Wagner's Eudora Prefs, a single plug-in that provides an interface for a number of less commonly changed settings in Eudora's Settings dialog. My major complaint with Wagner's Eudora Prefs is that it also changes the quote character to a non-standard one, and it does so in a way that changing it back requires using ResEdit. I've also edited Gilbert Rankin's <gilbert@netcom.com> message splitting submission slightly and uploaded it for FTP if you'd like to see how he provided an interface to Eudora's message splitting settings.
