    On windows I used to have software that would let me use a usb stick as a boot key (Wouldn't boot unless it was inserted) so I was wondering if there is anything similar for mac? Or something where I could insert the usb key or sd card instead of entering a password for say after sleep etc...

      I wasnt booting from the usb... my hdd was encrypted and would require a password on boot or for the key to be inserted, instead of typing the password.

        I don't think so, unfortunately.

        I might be wrong though, just keep googling and ask on some Mac Forums.
