Switch to login window upon sleep
Authored by: Dahak on Jul 28, '04 12:08:00PM

Password protected wake-from-sleep is built into 10.3, but from my perspective it suffers from two drawbacks:

1. You can unlock the screen using any admin login and password on the Mac.

2. If you're set up as a Mobile User, where your login checks for an Open Directory server for authentication before falling back on cached credentials, your PowerBook may fall back asleep several times before the password screen even comes up.

With this hint, switching to the login screen allows you the security of knowing that only your login and password will unlock your session.
