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.

Send Article to a Friend

COPSTalk 2.5 Connects Win95 and AppleShare IP -- Apple's AppleShare IP 5 and ShareWay IP from Open Door Networks enable Mac users to access AppleShare volumes over the Internet. Until now, Windows 95 users couldn't access those AppleShare volumes over the Internet; with the release of the $159 COPSTalk 2.5 from COPS Inc., they can. COPSTalk is currently bundled with the AppleShare IP 5 Software Bundle CD, and upgrade discounts are available. You can also download a 10-day evaluation version. [ACE]
