    I'm having an issue with this feature in Mac OS X Lion 10.7.1. Basically, I've noticed that I can now no longer specify a time interval to require a password for after a screen saver or sleep or display sleep begins. Filevault is not enabled, it worked in SL and actually I could set it to 15 minutes even in Lion. Obviously something has triggered it which means I can no longer do it.

    Whats strange is that I can still uncheck/check the checkbox (but not set the time) even though it is greyed out--unclickable if you will

    Any answers? Help?!

    Thanks

    Tom

    For those wondering this is solved...if you download a Profile, it may prevent. Eg eduroam for universities on iPhones means you need a passcode within 5 minutes. Same on Lion it would seem.
