Go to:

System Preferences -> Security and Privacy

Then click the padlock in the bottom lefthand corner and enter your password. If you check the box marked "Disable automatic login" yours will probably be un-ticked. Make sure this box is ticked. That should do the trick.

You also may want to enable Filevault2 to encrypt your drive if you are that concerned about data theft.

I got
(Ingenieros Civiles Asociados), large construction company in Mexico

But I'd say his "MacBoom Pro" is unlikely part of the Irish Cycling Association

Ahh, I see the problem, it's actually a "McBoom Pro," has the most cycles since Armstrong.
