    My wife and I use the same computer and we like to log on to our own sections... Is there a way for her to log on "switch" without logging me off like you can do in windows?

    Also is there a way for her if she doesn't log out to log on to her own AOL instant messenger through my account. I do have ichat setup for me...

    Turn on "Fast User Switching" in the Login Options portion of the Accounts preference pane.
    Use the Mac Help menu from the Finder if you need more info.

    Yes, it's called "Fast User Switching".
    System Preferences -> Accounts -> Login Options -> Enable Fast User Switching

    Sure, but it'll kick her off AIM if she's also signed on in her own account as well. You can only be logged into AIM once.
