    I am using Logmein on my ipad to access my mbp remotely.

    If I fail to end my session on my ipad I am unable to reconnect after a short time.
    On returning home I find that my mbp is left with the user/password screen for making changes to the system.
    (I do not have login enabled for startup)

    Is there any way to stop this other than remembering to log out of logmein?

    I am away for a couple of weeks and do not want my screen burned.

    Set it so your computer will turn the display off after one minuit, also set screen saver to one aswell,

    Also alow remote wake on lan,

    Have you tried teamvier? it should work like 10000X better then logmein.

    That's open to debate. I have both on my Ipad and very much prefer logmein.

    But that might be a function of what I need to do on the remote machine.

    I have used 'teamviewer' and the 'logmein' both and in my view, 'logmein' is better than 'teamviewer', I mean its all about our individual choice, but I like 'logmein' more!

    +1 for logmein. I have tried several (including teamviewer) but logmein has worked the best of everything I have tried.

    I've used both as prefer logmein as its totally free. I can legally use it on work Mac/PC unlike teamviewer.
