what window manages all passwords on an iMac?

at some point, I set it up so that my iMac asked for my password at startup and now I don't want it to do that anymore. where would I find the window to de-select this?

also, how do I "lock" my computer so that I can secure it while I'm away?

I guess I'm trying to figure out where to go to manage passwords at startup, to lock while in use and passwords once the screensaver kicks on.

thanks so much!

i will rise up with fists!!

Accounts under system preferences. You could do log out when you walk away from your mac which will require a password.

You can also set screensaver to require a password to lock the screen.
