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.

DealBITS Drawing: A Stuffed Dog and Fetch 5.0 -- Congratulations to Glenn Blauvelt of cs.colorado.edu, whose entry was chosen randomly from 720 entries in last week's DealBITS drawing and who received a plush Fetch toy, along with a license for Fetch 5.0, worth $25. Even if you didn't win, you can still save 20 percent on Fetch 5.0 through 31-Oct-05 by using coupon code TIDBITS05 when ordering from within the Fetch application (choose Purchase from the Fetch application menu). This offer is open to all TidBITS readers (although those who entered the drawing received a 30 percent-off coupon). Keep an eye out for future DealBITS drawings! [ACE]
