    Hi, this may seem like a silly and an easy fix and I really hope it is, but when I click on my system preferences and go on security then on general, when i click the option require password to wake this computer from sleep or screen saver it doesn't work.

    I don't know whether any of my other preference settings have accidentally canceled it out or somehing is genuinely wrong - but these are my current settings for the things I think my be affecting it:

    in security/general: *require password to wake this computer... is ticked.
    *disable automatic login is tick *require password to unlock system preferences pane is not ticked *log out after ___ minutes of inactivity is not ticked.

    In energy saver for power adapter: *the computer sleeps 10 minutes * the display sleeps at 2 minutes

    In energy saver for battery: it is identical

    and my screen saver comes on in 4 minutes.

    there are also attachments you can look at if they work

    I don't know what I have done wrong but any help you can give will be infinitely helpful.

    hi henjam,
    have you tried turning off require password, rebooting and then turning require password back on? maybe try to repair permissions in disk utility too
