    ...Hi :D

    Have the entry level MacBook, just the admin account, no other user profiles set-up. She's a beaut. Trouble is, when I log-out, shut-down, put her to sleep I am never prompted to log-in when I turn the thing on, wake it from sleep.

    Any ideas?

    Apologies if this is a proper daft question.

    Hey :)

    You can disable Auto Login, just pop to System Preferences>Security and tick the box.

    Because Auto-Login is turned on. To change it go to System Preferences>Accounts.

    As for waking up from sleep go to Security>Preferences and hit the appropriate checkbox.

    Cheers you guys!

    Thanks very much for your prompt replies! I'll have a look at that when I get home from work (UK).
