Change the default screen unlock behavior
Authored by: fireyice01 on Aug 05, '08 11:35:13PM

So, I'm not allowed to want my computer to turn on the screensaver (which I sometimes enjoy starting blankly at) when it's inactive? I realize I could just have it turn the screen off, and not have to worry, but I think as a security precaution, I should be able to have my mac ask for my password when it wakes from sleep, and NOT ask for my password when I'm using it, and step away for a moment. The computer is in a secure location when I leave it, and when I'm leaving for the day, I close the lid (putting it to sleep), at which time I would expect it to prompt for a password when it woke.

It seems to me that Apple should allow users to have one without the other. Anybody come up with a viable workaround?
