    Hi all,

    How do I get my picture to show after my computer awakes from sleep mode and asks for my password?

    Under System Prefs, go to Users & Groups. Click box next to "Change Password" and select your photo.

    Voila! Now that photo will appear when your computer asks for a password. If not, try restarting and hopefully it will work.

    Ahh no. I already have a pic. When my computer goes to sleep, it asks for a password when I wake it. Instead of having my name, I want to see my icon. Anyone know how to change this?
