whenever I LOCK my desktop or session, the "Enter Password to
Unlock your Desktop" prompt disappears after about 15 seconds or
so then its just only my desktop screensaver thats actually blank...How can I make it just stationary for it to be seen all the time
whenever I choose to lock my workstation or system?  And then when I move my mouse it appears again. So how can I make it to stay there all the time? I am using Solaris 10 on a CDE desktop

Thanks now that worked..it actually stayed still...But is there any way I can have a blank black backround with that password prompt window without having the desktop backround showing?

If not, then its no biggy..thanks

usually in the select box of your screensaver you can choose something like "none", "black", "password", etc.
(not sure about the current names)

If i disabled the screensaver, then how would I select? And in order to keep that password prompt still, I would have to leave it disabled.
