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.

MasterJuggler Catches Mac OS 8.5 Compatibility -- Alsoft has released a free update to its font-management utility MasterJuggler, fixing a few incompatibilities with Mac OS 8.5. The MasterJuggler Pro 2.0.2 Update fixes a problem when Font Guardian (a component that examines the reliability of font resources) was set to scan when the Mac is started up. This update also corrects minor glitches related to selecting items from MasterJuggler's pop-up menus. See "Font Outfitters" in TidBITS-334 for a comparison of MasterJuggler and Suitcase 3.0. The 2.0.2 updater is a 350K download. [JLC]
