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.

Extensis Releases Suitcase 10 -- Extensis has released Suitcase 10.1, bringing its long-standing font management software to Mac OS X.

Suitcase 10.1 is a free upgrade for registered users of Suitcase 10; otherwise, the full version costs $100 and upgrades from previous versions cost $50. A time-limited demo is available in U.S. English, German, French as a 14.4 MB download. [JLC]
