    I bought my Macbook pro 2010 unibody 2.4ghzC2D 2 months ago. I included the screenshots of my power settings: However, even though I set the computer "Never" sleep when on power adapter at night, I wake up in the morning and i have to relogin + all my open applications have been closed.

    :confused::confused::confused:

    It's actually a setting in System Preferences -> Security, which says automatically log out after XX minutes of inactivity. Just uncheck that box and it will stay just as you left it. Personally, I would recommend just closing your computer when you aren't using it to prevent excess HDD wear and power use. It will be exactly as you left it when you open it.

    Just put the computer to sleep to avoid automatic log-off or disable above option.
