Is there a way I can get Leopard to show me the log in screen after the computer goes to sleep or the screen saver has been on for a certain amount of time. If I walk away from my computer for say 15 min and my screen saver comes on after 10 min then my wife jump onto the computer after it comes out of screen saver I want it to show the log in screen instead of going back into my account. How can I do this?
QUOTE Thanks

The option you want is in System Preferences -> Security

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

you will stay logged in...you are just putting a password on your screensaver

Have you enabled the Fast User Switching? (System Preferences-Accounts)
If the screen saver is disturbed, it will have options for your password and also to switch user.

When all else fails, try everything!
The Rep System and you.
