    With Yosemite, I find that if I do a restart, I have to select my identity, enter my PW then wait for nearly a minute before I'm up and running with my various programs loaded. Is there a way (yes, I tried System Preferences, and don't see an option) simply to allow this to open up after a restart and bypass the ID screen?

    Don't know about the iCloud thing. But if FileVault is enabled, you need to unlock the drive first to boot, so, a login screen. And since it appears that Yosemite tries to turn on FileVault during the install process, can see what's possibly happening.

    As for "Automatic Login" setting: it's greyed out on my machine, running FileVault. Which makes sense re: above.
