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.

GoLive Lives On -- Last week, GoLive Systems shipped GoLive CyberStudio, currently at version 1.0.1. Although the $349 suggested retail price puts CyberStudio out of reach for casual Web authors, it offers a promising WYSIWYG alternative for professional authors, especially those who create visually rich Web sites, frequently employ plug-ins, or would appreciate a built-in JavaScript editor with color syntax checking.

CyberStudio retains the elegant look of its predecessor, GoLive Pro (see TidBITS-337), and adds many important features. The Layout Grid tool enables users to create pixel-specific layouts. On the HTML side of things, these layouts turn out to be complex, fixed-size tables, but the grid is optional and sizable, so it's easy to create pages that don't impose a particular browser window size. Site management options that I spotted on a quick tour of the program included viewing site structure and checking for bad links, plus the ability to export to Apple's Meta-Content Format (see TidBITS-355). I'm particularly taken with the fact that although you can type HTML in the Source view, you can also create tags using the menus and toolbar, just as you would in Layout view, a seemingly obvious feature that other WYSIWYG HTML editors have failed to implement.

According to GoLive Systems, CyberStudio can simultaneously support multiple language sets. The company has near-term plans to ship localized international versions, including Japanese and German. To run the software, you'll need to meet somewhat hefty system requirements - a PowerPC-based computer running System 7.5.5 or later and at least 8 MB free RAM, with 16 MB recommended. A thirty-day trial version is available; the download is about 4 MB. Upgrades from golive and golive pro cost $249. GoLive Systems -- 415/463-1580 -- 415/563-1598 -- <info@golive.com> [TJE]
