Sorry guys, I didn't explain myself very well. What I meant to say was - Go to Settings/Accounts/Sign-in Options/Require Sign-in and set that box to "Never". It works. I can put my pc to sleep and wake it from sleep without having to sign in every time. It also boots straight to desktop from start-up.
I don't store anything on my PC apart from the OS and the programmes/apps. I store everything on an external HD backed up by another ext HD kept in my safe. If someone burgles my house & wants my data, the best thing they can do is take my ext HD. It's not encrypted so I guess they could get some info, not sure what use it would be to them. I use KeePass for passwords which I keep on a separate USB stick, so they wouldn't get that info from either the PC or the ext HD. I suppose I should encrypt my ext HD, but the house is alarmed & just how far do you go?
