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.

ClarisWorks/Quicken Deal

Send Article to a Friend

If you're thinking about buying ClarisWorks soon, you might add it to your Christmas list. Until 01-Jan-93 every ClarisWorks box includes a free copy of Quicken, Intuit's popular personal finance program. I've never used Quicken personally (I started with MacMoney and these aren't the sort of programs you switch easily), but it's a pretty good deal if you need a personal finance program. Quicken normally lists for $69 and ClarisWorks for $299, but you can find them for as little as $42 and $199 pretty easily. It doesn't appear from a quick call to MacConnection that you get Quicken with the $95 ClarisWorks sidegrade offer.
