I have set up my partners computer with two users - Admin and one for her. She has a habit of turning the computer on and going away for some time (an hour or so) while it boots up. She tells me that sometimes, when she gets back to the computer, it has booted into the Admin user (I do not password protect that user). I cannot understand how that happens, except I have noticed that this user is the default user in that there is a box around it and just pressing Return takes it system into that user profile.
So, my questions are:
1. Is it possible that, after some time waiting for a user selection, the machine adopts the 'default' user? Everything I know suggests not
2. Is there a way of changing the 'default' user? It may be that she presses Return to turn the screen on after leaving it, and by so doing selects the Admin user
I realise I can password protect the Admin user, and that would solve the problem, but I would really like to understand what is going on
