Lock on closing laptop lid?

Is there a way to have a running BW session lock when closing the laptop lid?

I run Bitwarden primarily from a Mac laptop with the Firefox extension, and I have set time-out lock to a comfortably short period of time. I also use the Desktop app in order to have biometrics available for unlocking. Unlocking is so convenient I would like to be able to lock both automatically when I close the lid. (I’m aware of the logout/lock capability by clicking my initials, but closing the lid is even quicker.) Is there a way to accomplish this or would this be a new feature?

There is no function specifically for this in Bitwarden, but you may be able to configure your computer to lock itself when the lid is closed, and then set the Bitwarden vault timeout to “On System Lock”.

Thanks. I think the Time-Out used to have a System Settings choice. I don’t see it now, however. Is it someplace else?

In the Chrome browser extension, there is an option “On System Lock”:

For some reason, this option does not exist in the Firefox browser extension:
