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.

MacAcademy Sponsoring TidBITS -- We're pleased to welcome our latest sponsor, MacAcademy. As the software we rely on for word processing, graphic design, number crunching, and database work becomes more complex, training becomes increasingly important. To meet this need, MacAcademy provides four types of computer training, including videos, CD-ROMs, and seminars, plus personalized on-site training. Their programs are available in English, Japanese, Spanish, and German. Over the years, MacAcademy has trained more than one million people via video and CD-ROM programs and 500,000 via seminars. MacAcademy's expertise includes most major Macintosh programs, and if you're a Mac user forced to use Windows at work, they also offer training for Windows software. Check out their online catalog for a full list of programs, plus schedules of the live seminars. [ACE]
