lost login screeen after computer crashed

hi, running mdk 9.2 and computer crashed while watching media using mplayer.

When I force to reboot (pressing the reset button), the computer auto boot me into my kde desktop without asking me for username and password.

What can I do to get back that login screen?

Thank you

You probably have/had the auto-login on crash feature
turned on. Does it do the same thing repeatedly? That is,
if you just log out, log back in, then reboot the box via
software, does it still log you back in?

hi Tinkster:

yea, even when rebooting the box, the machine kept log me back to kde without asking me to log in...

i think i just want my login screen back so i can have some sort of security around :P
