    How do you get the login screen to appear when booting up? I'm having a temp brain fart (:blind and can't seem to find the option to do it in sys prefs. None of my searches in the forum are yielding anything. Thanks in advance

    I'm thinking that if you don't have a login screen then you haven't set a password. You can do that in the preferences panel.
