A thank you and a question about AutoLogin

First of all, I've been an avid Linux users for many years, but this is the first time I tried Bodhi. I'm very pleasantly surprised how good-looking and functional this distro in general and the Moksha desktop in particular are! A big thank you to the developers for their work.

But I've also got a question: I noticed that my user account is automatically logged in on boot-up, although I deliberately chose to ask for a password when I installed Bodhi. Is that a common error? It's not a big deal, but maybe something one should look into.

Thanks for the reply!
I'll try it out. Sadly, another problem has cropped up, the PC doesn't shut down. One of my two screens goes off, the other stays on the shutdown screen. It's weird, as if one of the screen was preventing the system from shutting down completely.
