    Hello everyone,

    Is it possible to force the login screen instead of the locked screen when the computer goes to screen saver? I ask because the computer is used by the entire family - and by going to the login screen with all the users shown, the individual user will be more likely to login as themselves rather than just the current locked screen user.

    Thanks
    Daniel

    The closest thing I know of is to use the Fast User Switching feature.

    System Preferences > Accounts > Login Options > Show fast user switching (check box)

    That's what I have enabled - Fast User Switching - I'd just like to use that screen when the computer is returned from screen saver mode, rather than the lock screen. Ideas?
