It’s so hard to make everyone happy, and not destroy the app with a zillion options ;-)
Most users are concerned about *not* having to enter the password every time…
We’re thinking about a way to enable some of these optional behaviors in a way that does not negatively impact the clear majority of users who’re really happy with the way we designed it.
I essentially agree with you – if you’re actually behind a password protected screen saver, there’s a good case for keeping you signed in. But most users see it differently, so we implemented the auto-sign out.
Stay tuned, we’ll be working with these issues the coming weeks.
