    I have now set my iMac with ML on to have numerous log ons for the family.

    They are set to auto lock, after no activity of 30 mins or so. However the kids and wife, keep forgetting to log out, and so when I come along (I'm Mr Admin :) ) they are all logged in.

    Is there any way to force log out the other users easy enough? The kids have a simple password, which I keep forgetting, but its a long winded way anyway.

    Also my iMac is a 2007 2GHz C2D 4Gb RAM, will having other users logged in be using system resources, and slowing it down with all left logged in?

    cheers

    Yes, but depending on what applications are running, they shouldn't use that many resources, ie. you shouldn't feel a difference.

    Is there anyway I can tell? They only surf really, no games? Is it me just being paranoid then? There is a total of 4 users.
