    I need help setting a password protection that would be activated when there has not been use for 30 sec. My kids have gotten on when I was working on important files and now many are missing.

    Thank you!!

    Setup your screen saver with a password and set the time to 3 minutes and enable a hot corner to turn on the screen saver when you leave the computer.

    Also go to System Preferences>Security and ensure that it's set to 'Require password Immediately after sleep or screen saver begins'. Or 5 seconds if you prefer.
