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.

Jeff Carlson at Apple Store Bellevue Square

Jeff Carlson at Apple Store Bellevue Square -- With Adam and Tonya now living in Ithaca, New York, there's no need for other TidBITS staffers to make the trek to New York City for this week's Macworld Expo, which means I miss out on meeting TidBITS readers and rubbing shoulders with thousands of Mac users this time of year. Instead, I'm going to do something more engaging (and with a much better commute). On Saturday, 19-Jul-03, I'll be at the Apple Store Bellevue Square in Bellevue, WA between 10:30 AM and noon to talk about iMovie 3, video editing, and other topics related to my just-released book iMovie 3 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide. Stop by and chat about video editing or just say hi! [JLC]
