Encryption Questions

I want to enable filevault 2. I read that with filevault 2 I no longer need to log out for time machine backups to work hourly. Will I need to enable the encrypt disk feature in time machine in order for my backup to be encrypted also? Or do I just encrypt my whole drive with filevault and let time machine back it up as normal.

You need to enable it for TM to encrypt your backup. If your whole drive is encrypted with filevault 2 and you don't enable encryption on your TM backup it won't be encrypted.
