I don't know if I have Mountain Lion but this is the only place I can find to post a question. I have 10.6.8 on my MacBook. I got a new hard drive and now every time I shut down the computer it makes me log in again when I turn the computer back on. The only option to stay logged in is in Accounts in System Preferences. I have "Automatic" checked and my name in the box. Still, it asks for a password every time. I went to the Apple store and the guy I talked to tried it and it didn't work. He looked online and couldn't find it. How do I stay logged in. I've looked at everything on the login page and I can't find anything checked or unchecked that needs to be changed. I went to "Security" in System Preferences and the disable automatic login box is unchecked. I'm so frustrated. Do you know what I am doing wrong or why it won't keep me logged in?
