Suddenly, my iMac under System 10.9.2 logs me out whenever it goes to sleep. Any idea as to why this is happening and what to do about it?

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Go into Security & Privacy in System Preferences and see if you have got that very dangerous File Vault turned on, and if so have you checked the log me out option?

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!

It actually logs you out or simply requires you to type in your password when you wake it up?
2 different things and the 2nd is the default setting.

System Preferences - Security & Privacy

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
