Ok, I know this has probably been answered in one of those really long threads about lion, but is it full disk encryption??

and secondly, a smaller question, when you use the itunes album artwork screensaver, how do you move your mouse to play an album without it backing out of the screensaver?

Um... you don't? It just shows album art, it's not meant as an interface for iTunes.

I vaguely recall hearing you could interact with it a bit in DP1, but I never tried it. :p

When screen saver is activated, simply move your mouse over any album artwork and click on it. It starts playing. Pretty straightforward.

Also, remember that in Lion, you're no longer able to wake up display or deactivate screen saver with trackpad/mouse motions. Physical button press is the only way.

Besides playing/pausing, you can also change volume by using the volume buttons (without ever deactivating screen saver).
