Avoid triggering Hot Corners accidentally
Authored by: torch_55 on Jun 26, '13 06:42:18PM

Nice!!! This will end my frustration - when I accidentally hit the corner to put the screen to sleep, I have to enter my password to wake it up & get back to sleep. One time I just couldn't see the pointer and actually did this three times in a row. Not a lot of fun...

Password delay

Sounds like you should probably add a delay before you have to type in your password upon triggering sleep. Go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General. There's a menu that lets you set how long before the password is required. Set it to 5 seconds, and you should be much happier.
