I have 3 users on my Tiger iMac1 needs a password - I must have done something to invoke this
trawling through the previous messages i found something that matched exactly what i was looking for from "odd timer" and "Scathe" back in 2009 which pointed me in the right direction
disabling password log in
I have done the system preferences>security and privacy> and there is no tick mark against disable automatic login in for that account
When i go into Login Option her account name is listed in the Automatic Login
The options are Off and then the 3 account user names
Is there something else I'm missing?
I've noticed that her name appears in that box for all 3 accounts "Login Option" box

Now it's not the end of the world if this is a mac foible but it is frustrating that she has to and the 2 men don't (now no funny comments please )
Ideas wild be great
QUOTE Thanks

I can't believe no-one has any ideas.
