    I have 17 inch macbook pro from mid 2009 running Yosemite 10.10.5. I just started using keychain and I always log off or shut down my computer when I leave the house or go to bed in case i have a home robbery. Am I safe to assume that my passwords in keychain are inaccessible to whoever steals my computer as long as I have logged off?

    Yes there safe. Even if someone uses a terminal command to change your login password (assuming you've no efi password set) they wouldn't gain access to that data.
