Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2008 8:44 AM (in response to Mac Medic (be@MacOSG.com))Mine has Never. And 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 minutes.
I would like mine to lock after, say, 30 minutes. It's a drag typing in my password after just 5 minutes away.
Anyone know if there is a way to do this?iMac G5, Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2008 11:01 AM (in response to French_Chris)I think you may have auto lock and password lock confused. You mention as options: never 1,2,3,4,5 -- that is for auto lock which requires no password to unlock. Password lock options are immediately, 1,5,15 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours.
If you set your auto lock to 5 minutes you wont have to type in your password unless you have password lock set at 5 minutes as well. Try auto lock at 5 minutes and password lock at 1 hour that way password will only be required after 1 hour of inactivity.Dell Inspiron 17" wide screen, Windows XP Pro, iPhone 4gb
Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2008 1:40 AM (in response to Premonition23)Thanks. I am still learning my way around.
So what does autolock do that is different if it doesn't require a password to unlock?
My passcode lock is set to one hour yet I still have to type in my password with monotonous regularity.
I guess I can just turn autolock off and leave passcode lock at one hour. But I'd like to know what autolock is.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2008 6:02 AM (in response to French_Chris)I turned off autolock so it just stayed on the home page.
So I have turned that back on and also changed passcode lock to 4 hours.
We'll see what happens. I am sure it locked before one hour was up.iMac G5, Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.5)

Tab back to general > tap to pass lock > tap require pass lock set it to 1hour
Tap home button
