Not a problem.
It is a Macbook Pro, Mac OS C Version 10.7.4
When we close down and restart, it still happens.
He is not logged in.
When it starts, we have 4 circles. My son #1, my husband, son #2 (the issue, not him the user login (LOL), and a guest user. They are all set up as Administrators, I believe.
All are password protected.
I can log in to son #1, my husband, and the guest (no password needed).
Son #2, the password is correct, as it does not wiggle, if you know what I mean.
I choose his circle, input the password, and it thinks (the little circle rainbow circle). Then nothing, back to main screen with the 4 user circles.
At bottom, I have sleep, restart, and shutdown.
Last, he did say it was getting slow. Then this just happened. He is 16 so plays a ton of games, and online sites etc.
Any suggestions I would welcome!
Thank you in advance.
Is fast user switching enabled? If not, turn it on (in 10.6.8 it is System Preferences/Accounts/Login options) log in to one of the working accounts, try to login by selecting son2 from the drop-down menu in the top right, then use Console.app to see were any errors reported.
Why is there no account for the boss?
