...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.

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).
