I’m on a Mac: Screensavers and keys

No real editorial here, just capturing some metrics.  Number of keys lost when coming out of screensaver or sleep to the unlock password prompt:

  • Windows XP: 1..n — You have to hit ctrl-alt-del anyway.  And all keys between CAD and when the prompt shows are lost.
  • MacOS X (Snow, Lion): 0..1 — sometimes works, sometimes doesn’t.
  • Linux (Ubuntu 6.6 +): 0 keys lost.  Always works just like you want.  You can type your password before your screen powers on.
