How do I enact a log on to my computer? More specifically, after I have been on the computer, how do I lock it to where it requires the user to input a password to get back on the computer?

Thanks, now will that time out? Meaning, if I walk away will the computer lock in a certain amount of time? I didn't see that option. Thanks.

I understand that, that is good stuff. To go one step further, can you change a setting to make the computer auto lock after 10 minutes of no use without powering down or do you have to go through the power settings?
