comment double password entry to access account
No problem, thanks again for the updates, I will try this out. Do you think it will work if I put my computer to sleep manually, without any screen saver coming on (that's the way my computer usually sleeps)?

Thanks for the quick answer, just did a quick test of the ps and grep commands, nothing came up. Perhaps the 4 hour timer that locks my account is not controlled by ScreenSaverEngine.app?

What was wrong with the question? It's always nice to get a comment when getting a downvote, otherwise how can you learn from your mistakes?

Forgot to mention I don't want to enter my password after every wakeup from sleep, I'll update my post.

Yes, that worked, thanks! Just named the file suspend instead of logout. Now I just need to get user confirmation with a popup, if that's possible--I'll open another question: apple.stackexchange.com/q/49946/8699

Tried that command in crontab, no luck there either. Doesn't that require the entry of a password?

No luck there. I think the user running the cronjobs (root) can't call suspend on another user, at least not with this command.
