Chapter 12. Accounts and Security > Signing In, Logging Out

12.5. Signing In, Logging Out

Once somebody has set up your account, here's what it's like getting into, and out of, a Mac OS X machine. (For the purposes of this discussion, "you" are no longer the administrator—you're one of the students, employees, or family members for whom an account has been set up.)

12.5.1. Identifying Yourself

When you first turn on the Mac—or when the person who last used this computer chooses → Log Out—the login screen shown in Figure 12-1 appears. At this point, you can click any of the buttons (Restart, Shut Down, or Log in) or, more commonly, type your user name and password to log in.
