Hi all, So I just encrypted my HDD on my MacBook Pro and it took a few hours, which is to be expected. I actually have a questions regarding "When" is my HDD not protected against unauthorised access? 1. If I shut down the MacBook completely - obviously, the drive is locked and encrypted - correct? 2. If I just close the lid and the Mac goes to sleep - the drive isn't "Locked" so anyone with my password can login and do as they please? 3. If I close the lid and mac goes to sleep - then someone pulls the HDD out - it will be locked, correct? With point number to - if they cannot get my Password - they would have to restart the MacBook to get into the utilities section and this will prompt the start up password and the drive will be locked right? What I am trying to figure out is when is my drive not "locked" or protected? Thanks!
