    Just wondering, is it possible to require a password to unlock the screensaver, but NOT when awaking from sleep?

    I can only see the option in Security (Require password to wake this computer from sleep or screen saver), but they don't seem to be available seperately?

    I don't think this is possible. If it were, it would be a huge security flaw. Many people have the screen saver kick in, then the computer goes to sleep some time later. So you would just have to wait for sleep, then wake the computer and have access.

    Yeah, true enough.

    I'm just trying to think of a way to have Super Duper doing a backup every night, without having to leave my computer on and unlocked for it to work (it has to be unlocked for SD to launch).
