Recently, I noticed due to one of Lion's many upgrades, that I now have a new intro screen when cold booting. Now I see my user (admin) name/icon + guest user/icon. Takes Lion a minute or so for my trackpad or mouse to become active so I can select my User icon and then type in my password. What is up with Apple??

Never mind that I can't disable "disable auto login". Can that be done? Does any one know how to do that?

I should have just stuck to using 10.4 Snow Leopard. No issues for me.

Lion is 10.7, now up to 10.7.2. I believe you can disable the login requirements in Preferences under the Security and Privacy Tab.

Don't know why I thought Lion is 10.5.

Nope. Tried Pref---Security. Can't access the option to disable "diable auto login". It's greyed out. Do you not see it with your copy of Lion? Or are you still running 10.6?

It's definitely there - if that option is disabled for you, click the lock in the lower left corner, enter your superuser password and you should be able to enable automatic login.

I'm running Lion and just did exactly that.

It's only greyed out on mine if the lock on the lower left corner clasp is closed. If that's the case, click on the lock, authenticate, and it should become active again

I'm running 10.7.2.

Tried that. First thing I tried. No luck. That option was still greyed out. Which is why I am asking.

Does it let you enter your superuser/admin password when you click on the lock? Is the lock open or closed? would you be able to post a screenshot of this System Preferences window?

Yes I can unlock (e.g. using my password...of course). I can also check and uncheck all the other options. It's just the option to "disable auto login" that's greyed out. Locked or unlocked. That's the problem.

Do you (or any one else) get a new intro screen when you cold boot that displays an icon of your main account plus an icon for "guest user"? I never had this when I first installed Lion (for weeks). Now I have to wait a few minutes for the password field to appear & my trackpad or mouse to be active. So annoying.

Nope.

Press on/off button, seven seconds to chime, four seconds to grey screen with gear wheel and six seconds to desktop with no password or logins required.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

No Login screen here on iMac 2007 or Intel Mini. Clean install of Lion. Installed it for friends and no login screen there either.

10.7.2 here on both systems. No such issues. Trackpad is there the second OSX shows up.

Didn't work. Still got the grey screen with my Admin icon + Guest User icon. Had to wait a minute for my mouse or trackpad to be active. Then clicked on my icon to get the password box. I think 10.7.2 messed up my machine a little. Maybe 10.7.3 will fix this.

You have filevault turned on?

That option is unavailable with filevault.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
