In your answers about this great utility, Carmine said,
"There is a delay "grace period" after screen saver starts, where moving the mouse/pressing a key will dismiss the saver (I think the default is 5 secs, I've upped my grace period to 20 secs). You have to let the SS run for at least this time before the 'lock' takes effect."
If Password protection is set on the screensaver, it will activate after the defined number of seconds(i.e. grace period).
My question is how do I set the amount of time for the "grace period"?
I would like to make it instant (zero seconds) with no delay so that it will not dismiss the saver without a password once I've clicked the shortcut.
I'm running Windows 2000PRO on a laptop.
