Or just crappy design? Go into System Preferences>Security. I can uncheck -Require password x minutes after sleep... without putting my password in or clicking the lock. It doesn't tell me I need to log out for it to take effect or anything so what gives? Example: Say I'm away for two minutes and someone does this. Then I come back, then go off for lunch assuming my mac will lock, this person just comes back and rips my nuclear launch codes. I have to be missing something.
