    I have young kids who sometimes can't resist typing on my macbook keyboard.

    If I got a iWatch and enabled auto unlock, would I be able to control (from the watch) when and if the laptop was unlocked?

    What if I walk away after it's auto-unlocked -- does it immediately re-lock or wait for the usual screensaver timeout?

    I think the only functionality of the Watch is to unlock your Mac. That's it.

    There's been no mention of geo-fencing, so I imagine the Mac doesn't lock when your watch is out of range. You walk away and it's up to the Mac to lock at a timed interval you select.

    FYI, I have needed to reboot the Mac after turning this feature on for it to work.

    If you want the power to lock and unlock at will try Mac ID, its in the app store for .99-2.99 I believe. It supports all iOS devices including the apple watch, and it was around before this update. I personally use it.

    You can also use tap pattern (tapping on track pad) to lock/unlock your Mac. Pretty cool app.
