    Hello!

    Ive recently activated the default guest account in leopard. However even though when I check in the accounts.prefpane it says that it is on and its 'login only' and when I click on the account it says 'allow guests to login into this computer' and its on.

    However when I boot up my machine and click on the guest icon, it wont let me in as it shakes the menu(login failed).

    Ideas?

    In case people come across this looking for something to try...

    I had this same issue. Open System Preferences, select Users, unlock (if needed), right-click (ctrl-click) on the Guest Account and select advanced options.

    Click on the button "Create New" UUID ... and for me, then it was fixed!

    I hope this works for anyone else with this problem,

    Scott.
