    use: I have an iPhone and an iPad with "Parallels Access" installed, and I use them to remote control my mac.
    For security reasons, my screen saver (on the mac) is set to require a password after 5 seconds.
    I also set parallels desktop (in the mac preferences for the parallels access agent, in the Advanced tab) to "lock this computer when working remotely" and "lock this computer once you finish working remotely".

    The problem seems to be that last bit. There's a gap between the time when I finish working remotely ... and when the screen locks. I can sit at the mac and twiddle the mouse when the transition is happening. When I do that, instead of the screen locking, it opens right up for me. This basically makes my desktop insecure if I'm doing remote work.

    Is there any way you can hold your custom screen lock for an extra 10 seconds after you've engaged the screen saver? or is there some other fix for this?
