Hi, I recently bought a new G4 and gave my wife my old one. I didn't want to erase it all, so I gave her a new login. Now everytime she reboots or turns on the G4 she has to log out of my side and log in as herself. The system brings me up first, always. Is there any way to get the system to log in as her first? Or do I have to reinstal the OS?

Thanks for the feedback.

In System Preferences => Security, disable automatic login.

Alternatively go to System Preferences => Accounts => Login Options and choose your wife as the person to automatically login as.

My wife will certainly be happy about this. Thanks a lot. She was starting to make noises about getting another one just for her!
