Feature or bug?

Microcenter iBook®™ running 10.3.9

When it sleeps while open, the password unlocks it.
When it sleeps from being closed the password seems to work but it flashes right back to locked, and no possible variation on the unlocking technique will unlock it, thus hard shutdown via power button and restart.

Is this a known problem> Or supposed to work this way?

Not sure but I think it may do this when sleeping open for long periods too . . .



I suffer from the same sensitivity that you do. A few nuggets of wisdom were shared with me and I'm "trying" to incorporate them into my life. First, remember that nobody can hurt your feelings unless you let them. You can always reject what is being forced on you emotionally.
Second, nothing changes unless you change it. If you don't want the behavior to be repeated then you need to take action. Otherwise the kid has learned that his behavior is the way to get things done, because everyone lets him get away with it.
In the meantime I sympathize because I've been there.

Possibly a timed-screensaver is doing it.

Go into the System Preferences and look in the Desktop & Screeensaver pref. Set the Screensaver timer to "Never."

'Still have the problem?

After entering your password, see if killing the frontmost process (command-shift-option-escape) has any effect.

MM, it is a timed screensaver. That's a feature that is intentionally being used.

johnc, that doesn't seem to do anything . . .

Can you get along just using the display-sleep timer in the Energy Saver, or do you really need a screensaver running?
