May seem obvious but are you ticking the stay signed in box?

Yes mate i always stay signed into my home page.. If i run cc cleaner it wipes it all off and i have sign in again.. But i never ran anything and came too my pc as normal and it asked me too logg in..What i dont understand is i thought hang on im signed in,so i closed that window opened another 1 and eh presto i was signed in! That what i dont understand. ty
