Currently Filevault has the rather annoying compulsory security feature that it overrides the preferences for requiring password on wake from sleep or screensaver. This means that every time my screen goes dark I have to enter my password to get back in, which is a real annoyance for me as I tend to work in little batches so I'm entering the password 20 or 30 times a day or I waste energy by setting it to never turn the display off.


My concern for using Filevault is to guard against theft of the machine ( and the data on it)  when the building is unoccupied - I have no concerns about other people using when I'm there so sleep password is an annoyance and nothing more.


Does anyone know of a way to force Lion to pay attention to the setting in the Security preference panel and NOT require the password after display sleep?
