    Anyone remember the lock screen from the Lion GM? The one that came on when you put you're laptop to sleep? Any idea how to turn that back on? I really liked that feature.

    I didn't even know about that, and I've been using Lion since DP2. My guess is that you need to turn on "require password after sleep or screen saver begins" in the security and privacy pane in Preferences.

    Actually I'm not talking about that one, there was another one. One that was simpler and only a small user name input box, an X to cancel below. I'm sorry I don't have a image to show you, I never thought of taking a screen shot


    scratch that found one on the net.

    Is this it? - System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Tick "require password immediately after sleep or screen saver begins"

    I'm on a domain network so I don't have the same settings as a home user so you might need to tweak some settings in the Users & Groups like auto-login.

    Yeah, I get that same small square box. On the one hand, it is aesthetically pleasing, on the other hand, it looks even less professional than the black screen with the box, but it may help when using some TV's as a display, as I know one that I used to have would get faked out by the login screen and mess up the screen position when waking up.
