Require a password on waking from sleep, but not when screensaver is active
Have you ever wanted to have your Mac require a password on waking from system sleep, but not ask for a password when the screensaver is on or the screen was locked? Well, me neither, but someone out there might and it’s kind of a nifty customization tip. Here’s how to do it:
Launch the Terminal from the /Applications/Utilities directories, and type the following defaults write command:
defaults -currentHost write com.apple.screensaver askForPassword -int 0
Reversing this should just be a matter of changing the 0 to a 1
defaults -currentHost write com.apple.screensaver askForPassword -int 1
I came across this nice trick on TUAW that I thought it was worth reposting here to our readers.
