    This might be a silly question but is the padlock to make changes always unlocked after a reboot when using the administrator account?

    In system settings I can lock it to prevent changes but after a reboot if I go back to those settings it is always unlocked again. Is there a way i can set it to remain locked?

    Look in the Keychain application settings. You can set it to time out and become locked after so much time of not being used.
