10.6: Set precise screensaver password activation delay
Authored by: Jai Gill on Sep 04, '09 05:52:27PM

Having submitted feedback to Apple some five months ago, I had hoped that they would have separated the event that triggers the screensaver from the other event that sets the Mac off to sleep. And that a new option could be set to require a password purely for 'wake-up from sleep'.

I did not want to have to deal with passwords every time the screensaver kicked-in but was happy to do so when waking the MBP up from sleep.

In this way, the operating system would not place silly irritating demands on me just because I was doing something not involving the computer for whatever time it took the screensaver to kick-in. And yet protect my data when it went to sleep or I put it to sleep as I headed out the door...

Hopefully, the new scheme in Snow should enable me to create something resembling this...
