Hello,

Fingerprint discussion aside, this is really about how should AxCrypt handle the situation of screen saver going active, going to sleep etc.

Unfortunately, there are two schools of thought among users:

1) Those who are very annoyed because they are not prompted for the password often enough. It is insecure they say!
2) Those who are very annoyed because they are prompted for the password too often. It is unusable they say!

We’ve tried to hit a balance here, but we’ll probably be adding yet another option (I really don’t like all these options…) to control the sign out behavior when the screen saver goes active. Maybe we’ll connect it to the inactivity option we already have. If it’s set to never timeout, we don’t sign out at sleep either. Or we’ll just have it as yet another option.
