    Hey Guys

    My wife and i both use the same iMac. What i would like to do is when i wake my Mac from sleep be presented with the option of Guest account (which my wife will be permitted to use) and my own account.

    It sounds like it should be something simple. I've recently switched from Windows and there are still a few things that i expect to work like a PC.

    Any ideas??

    Just log out before putting to sleep.

    When it wakes up both users will be listed.

    You can set it to auto logout under security in the system preferences, set the logout time the same as the sleep and when you wake it up you will be at the login screen.

    Cheers Guys

    I was hoping for something like on my PC where you can put the computer to sleep, and when it wakes you get the option to sign into either account. Also all the programs are still open....
