SafeSleep is an extension which offers a relatively secure degree of password protection -- but only when the Mac is woken up from sleep. (This is conceptualised only for portable Macs.)

Changing the Password

The default password is Password. Users are recommended to change this as quickly as possible by opening up the file using ResEdit and modifying STR ID 128.


  • SafeSleep is case-sensitive (which means wyOming, WYOMING and wyoming are not the same as Wyoming -- note the caps).
  • There is no need to press return -- as soon as the correct password (which does not show when it is being typed) is entered, the screen of the portable Mac is unlocked.
