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.

iLife & Keynote for $15 for Teachers

Send Article to a Friend

iLife & Keynote for $15 for Teachers -- Following on the heels of providing Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar for free to teachers (a promotion that Apple has extended through 31-Mar-03), Apple is now offering the entire iLife suite plus Apple's new Keynote presentation program for a mere $15 (a savings of $113). To qualify, you must be either a K-12 teacher or a full-time faculty member at a higher education institution. Unfortunately, the offer is good only in the U.S., and the software can be delivered only to your school's address. [ACE]
