I agree with Glen, I set systems up with a default of 7 minutes and a blank
screen saver & some just plain don't work.  Now in addition, I set up a
shortcut with the line below in it and set the Shortcut key to CTRL-ALT-L
and tell my customers about it!

I think he is saying that you shouldn't rely on the timing feature of a
screen saver to lock up your machine.

I have had times where I have been gone from my desk for an hour and my
screen saver never came on, and it is set (and verified) at 2 minutes.

Three-finger salute as I stand up from my desk is my habit now.

Chris,

I use the password protected screensaver all the time, and when I come back,
I have to CAD in order to enter the password and get back in. So you say
this method isn't secure? Or are you saying that someone might "assume" the
screensaver is activated, walk away thinking that, but meanwhile it's not
activated, thus leaving the computer open for some hanky panky? :-)
