In System Preferences, click Accounts. In the list of user accounts you should see a buttom with a house and the text Login Options. Click that button. There is an option to Automatically log in as: . Select that option and then select the user account. You will be asked to type your password. Exit out and restart to test it.

Hope this helps!

I assume you don't have anything important to your employer or business on your Mac. Every Mac should startup asking for a password and the screensaver should lockout users after a specified period of inactivity. This is even truer for laptop users. That is just plain good security.
