all my files are available to anyone who wakes my computer from ssameleep.
If you read the earlier posts you’d know this isn’t the case. Waking your computer up causes AxCrypt to request your password.
It stays logged in until you log out or you shutdown. If you set a screensaver or sleep timer then you’ll be logged out automatically.
By having this mechanism you are encouraged to use a longer and more secure password because you’re not typing it all the time.
