Hey guys, I have a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.9.2. I was wondering if it's possible to change the wallpaper of the lockscreen? I'm not talking about the login wallpaper. I'm talking about the wallpaper when we lift the Macbook open after closing it to automatically lock it without clicking on anything. Normally, it would show a screen asking for our password with the same wallpaper as our desktop background. Is it possible to change this to a different background?

I looked for a way to do this, but all I found was a solution on how to change the wallpaper right after you turn it on.

Thanks! :)

Sadly, you need to tweak. I have no idea how. But if you want to take the easy way, install Windows 8 using Boot Camp (for best results and support use the latest version 8.1).
