On Windows I select Window+L to lock my screen. Then on log-in, I find all the programs just where I left them. But this does not work on the Mac.
If I try to Log out, it says all programs will be closed. If I select Sleep, no password is required.
Should I turn Automatic Login to On?
Otherwise, what change can I make to allow me to securely walk away from my MacBook but not require me to re-open my programs?
