    Require password when waking from sleep

    On my (new) MacBook Pro, I have found how to set up OS X to need a password when booting up from a powered down state but how can I set it to demand a password when waking from sleep?

    This was a simple tick in Win XP but I can't find it in OS X 10.5.5

    I am sure it's straight forward here too, most things are with a Mac I am finding, it's just knowing where to look. I can't see it in System Preferences.
