Question about Computers & Internet
The problem in OS X 10.4.6 - 8 where, despite selection the option "Require password to wake up this computer from sleep or screen saver", you are not prompted for a password when waking up can be solved by resetting you parameter RAM. This is done as follows: 1) reboot while holding down Command-Option-P-R
You will notice that as long as you hold down these 4 keys during reboot the computer will cycle though the initial steps of reboot, e.g. you hear the DC drive calibrate. One it cycled though the RAM is reset.
2) go to System Preferences and select the Security menu. You will notice that the "Require password..." option is not set. Set it and this should solve your problem.
