I like the concept of hot corner actions but the trigger time for hot corner actions is too quick for me to make good use of them. I keep tripping my corner actions accidentally while reaching for objects in that general vicinity of the corner.
Is it possible to extend the trigger time for hot corner actions? So I have to hover in the corner for at least a second or two before the hot corner action triggers?
I was stuck with the same issue of adding a delay, NOT a modifier key.
Well, there's a workaround.
In the corner you want to use as a lock after a short delay, put Start Screen Saver in the Hot Corners dialogue, instead of Lock Screen. Then go to Security & Privacy and under General, set 5 seconds delay in Require Password after...
Thanks! I know this is beside the point...but I just needed to vent that unfortunately 5 seconds is not small enough. I just want to prevent the accidental activation of the hot corner (like 1 second needed...maybe 2 max). Now, I have to wait 5 seconds to make sure my screen saver stays on before walking away so someone doesn't "accidentally" bump my mouse and have access to my machine.
@Charlestone immediately does not give me any buffer whatsoever to make a "mistake". If I accidentally move the mouse down to a hot corner (which happens fairly often), I don't want it immediately activating. I need a second, maybe two, of buffer time (but not 5 seconds for reasons I explained).
