Hello Brink, thanks for the reply. I don't know if I can see entering a password when resuming after hibernating being too tedious, but that's just me. Depending on how your hibernation settings are set the computer shouldn't be hibernating every 10 minutes when you walk away to check on the kids. If it is, you should rethink your hibernation settings
I truly believe that anyone can benefit from beefing up security on their home machines, even desktops (although since I just bought my first laptop I've gone a bit security crazy with hit, hence my last post). Things like whole disk encryption are becoming more and more of a necessity in my opinion as methods to steal data become more and more advanced. Even if you don't think there is anything on your computer of value, there is probably someone out there that does.
Just my two cents though
On a side note, I saw the tutorial you wrote on changing the login screen background, kudos for that
Any chance I could get a copy of that background? I'd love to use that on my computer
