SleepTight provides a simple way to lock your machine when it goes to sleep or lock from a keyboard hotkey.Surprisingly, OS X's built in screensaver does not start automatically when the machine goes to sleep. Since the screensaver is the only Apple-supplied method of locking your machine without logging out, this means that a machine which has been put to sleep may wake up unlocked if the screensaver did not start on its own before the sleep timeout. This is especially frustrating for PowerBook users, who typically put their machines to sleep by closing the lid. Since the lid closure doesn't start the screensaver, the PowerBook will more...

Requirements

Works as it says it should work, EXCEPT that unchecking "Enable SleepTight" does not disable it. Once it's on, it's on. Turning it off does not turn it off.

This is a follow-up to my earlier comments...

After a couple of email exchanges with the developer, SleepTight is now absolutely perfect on my machine.

Even more impressive than SleepTight is the developer. Outstanding.

roleary, please contact me at the address provided in the ReadMe so I can track down the bug you found. I suspect it has to do with the specific hotkey you chose, and I need a copy of SleepTight's preferences file.

Was able to load the preference pane once.

Therefore I was able to set the pref.

The pane has crashed every time since, making it very difficult to disable SleepTight.

I love it, I'd love it more if the pref pane worked for me.

I LOVE THIS, and have no idea why Apple didnt include this in the first place.

As a Jaguar user, I usually leave my Mac at sleep to have a quick jumpstart. With SleepTight, I feel more secure to leave it unattended. Thanks for a peace-of-mind.
