    When I acquired an iMac and then got to the AP Store for the first time to download Mountain Lion, I was in truly deep waters.

    The install procedure (set up, actually) was simple. Then and there I should have chosen to avoid a sign in. I'm the only user of computer. But I overlooked that detail during setup.

    Am I destined forever and ever to have to enter password every time my computer goes to sleep? Help. How can I get rid of that security step.

    Can it be changed so there is no login?

    Open the System Preferences, by clicking on its icon in the dock. If it isn't in the dock, it is in the /Applications folder.
    Click on the Users and Groups icon, and then the "Login Options" icon. Have to click on the lock and enter your admin password. Set Automatic login to your user name ....
    That was easy wasn't it :cool: .

    Go to System Preferences > Security > General
    Click padlock. Enter password

    I tried both Users & Groups and Security, and it worked. Freedom from annoyances forever.

    Thanks
