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.

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder 2.9, its utility for navigating and organizing files and folders from within Open and Save dialog boxes. Default Folder enables you to jump to a user-configurable list of frequently-used folders, rename and delete files and folders, as well as edit file attributes such as Type and Creator information (similar to the utilities Now SuperBoomerang and ACTION Files; see "Get a Piece of the ACTION Files" in TidBITS 434). Version 2.9 adds the ability to store recent and favorite folders in the Apple menu for quick-jumping within the Finder; a Control Strip module also performs the same function. Default Folder is $25 shareware, and available as a 475K download.
