I wonder if anyone knows how I can start my computer (either take it out of sleep mode or start it from the turned-off state) without having to click on any icons?
I am not worried about anyone gaining unauthorized access to my stuff, so I want the easiest access possible for myself. It seems however that even if I have only one user account (my account as administrator without any guest accounts), and even if I do not have a password on this account, I am still shown a start-up screen with the administrator icon which I have to click on to "unlock" the computer and start using it.
I haven't told the computer to lock or log off when I close the lid (thus putting it in the sleep mode) or when I turn it off. So this extra screen where I have to click on an icon to bring up the starting screen is basically useless. All I want is fast and easy access.
Thanks for any advice you might have - it's appreciated!
