I keep finding that documents I haven't used in a while open locked because they haven't been used for a while. I see this in both '09 Pages and Numbers. I see no way in either programs Prefs to stop this. Is there a way.

    Even though your profile says you're using Snow Leopard, I'm guessing you're using Lion. This is a Lion feature & the setting is in System Preferences > Time Machine > Options & uncheck the box as in this screenshot. Or change the time frame to something other than the default two weeks.
