    It is always unlocked, even after I've explicitly clicked the lock to lock it , after I re-open System Preferences it still remains unlocked.

    I do not do any type of sharing with any computer on my network, so why does that lock gets unlocked by it self?

    Im thinking it's normal and there;s nothing to worry about but how do I make the lock stay locked

    Also, I've noticed that after you've unlocked something if you don't click the lock to lock it .. it remains open, even after reboot. So, if I forget to lock the lock anyone with access to my computer(physically and over the internet) can change settings that require administrator privilege. Is there a way to rectify this? Or just remember to lock the lock? lol
