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.

Fetch 3.0.2 Released -- As companies have begun to use the Internet to deliver software directly to users, file sizes seem to have grown exponentially. And frequently, as you download these huge files, your modem connection will break, requiring you to download the whole thing again. Fetch 3.0.2 circumvents this problem by incorporating a Resume Download feature that attempts to pick up where the first connection left off, assuming the specific FTP server you're using supports it. Other improvements in this release include greater stability with Open Transport, and incorporation of Stuart Cheshire's Natural Order sorting algorithm (see TidBITS-364). [JLC]
