under security prefs i cannot set require password x amount of time after screen saver begins to anything other than immediately. I have tried restarting.. doesn't work.

help?

Thanks

**** UPDATE***

So if you choose to activate file fault. You no longer have the option of changing when you will be asked for your password after screen saver starts.. it shows.. u options.. but when you select them it always goes back to 'immediately'.

Aarrrgh...this is so annoying! I enabled FileVault in case I left it at a coffee shop, it gets stolen, etc. However, I still wanted to retain control over how long the delay is before requiring a password...

I can only hope they change this or there's some command-line trickery to hack it.
