Make sure that you're not using FileVault or have accidentally invoked it. Login is mandatory if you're running FileVault. There is no way around it.

You may have a corrupt TextEdit Plist causing it to crash before it opens. Try deleting all the TextEdit Plist files. Don't worry about removing them, new ones will be created.

It's true once the iPhone has been located that the FMP logs you out after a few minutes, however, you still remain logged into iCloud - if that's what the OP was referring to. At least that's the...
