    I am puzzled by this. I decided to use a computer at an Elementary school I work at in Japan. I switched it on and then checked my email and surfed the web. I decided to shut down the computer after I finished. The next day a teacher says do not shut down the computer because last night teachers could not use the computer. Is this just a security reason once you shut down you can't use the computer again for that day? I always thought it was simply reenter the password and reconnect to the internet again to use the computer again. Cheers for any thoughts.:)

    What exactly happens when you try to log in a 2nd time in the same day? Are you logging in locally or to a network? With a local ID?
    What's the history of the computer? Purchased new? Used? Has it always been like this?
