Need more toner? Apple has introduced the LaserWriter Pro 810 Extended Capacity Toner Cartridge (item M3602G/A) to replace that printer's original cartridge, offering smaller toner particles, improvements in the charging area, and longer page life. (The cartridge prints an average of 13,000 letter size pages at five percent coverage, as opposed to 12,000 pages for the original.) When Apple took the LaserWriter Pro 810 off suspension earlier this year (see TidBITS-233) the company announced plans to offer an improved toner cartridge at a later time; it should be available by the time you read this.

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.
