My neighbor had someone steal funds by going onto their desktop and writing a check from their financial software. After that, I have password protected my computers. I recently got an iMac and am trying to figure the best way to do that. All user accounts have a password. We use a screen saver that shows family photos. I like the screen saver to come on after a short time, say 3 min, so we can have the photos showing, but I don't want to have to enter a password after just 3 min (inconvenient, as this would be happening all the time). I'd rather have the screen saver come on after 3 min but not require a password until, say 1 or 2 hours. I also don't want to use the security option that logs a user off after a set time because that user would lose their open apps. So does anyone know of a way to have the screen saver come on quickly, but have a password required only after a longer time, like 1 or 2 hours?
