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.

Poll Preview: I Go, You Go, We All Go Expo -- It's nearly on time for Macworld Expo again, and we've started up our coverage with a look at how to plan your time and find your way around at the show. Plus, we'll be writing several articles after Macworld Expo to tell you what we saw that warranted mention. But are Macworld Expos a big deal to you? Do you go to every one? Do you go when they're nearby, go occasionally, or (gasp!) not go at all? This week's poll asks how often you attend Macworld Expos - vote today so we can get a sense of whether TidBITS readers are likely to bomb off to the nearest Macintosh event or stay rooted at home behind an Internet connection.
