When I first got my MBA 11" I set it up and when I shut it off and turn back on it would just open with out a password page. Well my son played with it and after he left I tried to open it now I get sign page with my picture and quest and I have to put in my pasword. I am quadriplegic so the least I have to do is better. Can I get it back to the way it was before my son got his hands on it.

Log in with your password, then go to System Preferences > Accounts > your account > Change Password and remove it.

Yes, go to System Preferences > Accounts > Login Options > Automatic login: On
(You'll probably need to click the padlock and enter your password to enable changing that option.)
