Forum Question: Can I Stop Having To Sign In Every Time I Leave My iMac?

I have to sign in with my password every time I leave me computer for more than a few minutes. No one else has access to my computer, so it isn’t necessary.Can I cancel this?

    This is a setting in System Preferences, Security & Privacy. In there you’ll see the “Require Password for Sleep and Screen Saver” option. You’ll also find other settings and options there related to this.

    A poignant question might be, “How in the world did this person’s settings get set?”
