This might sound like a silly question. But can someone access your computer information if you are logged out and computer is in sleep mode.
I have it set that after 1 hr it goes to sleep and it logs out. . My husband accidentally moved the keyboard over 4 hrs ago and it still shows online, no available location on my iphone? Thank you

Yes, if you haven't set a password to log on or when the machine wakes up.

If you have your machine set to sleep first and then log out, it's not going to work. (When the machine is sleeping it's on low power.)
