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.

RSI Network Newsletter

Send Article to a Friend

RSI Network Newsletter subscribers might have had problems receiving issue 17. Craig O'Donnell <dadadata@world.std.com> writes: "Thanks to a full moon and an unfortunate series of slip-ups somewhere out in Net-Land, the 17th RSI Network Newsletter mailing went awry. Some people didn't get a newsletter, but instead got a crabby message from some guy and ten or fifteen bounced mail messages. Some people got both the issue and the junk. I don't think anyone knows what happened but it's been fixed."

The RSI Network Newsletter discusses issues and ideas relating to repetitive stress injuries. If you want to subscribe, send a mail message to <majordomo@world.std.com> with this line into the body of your message (the Subject line doesn't matter):

subscribe rsi

To remove yourself from the newsletter list, send email to the same address and use as the command:
