I don't lock mine. I don't need too.

If my pc was password protected, my wife would find that suspicious and would probably imagine all kinds of stupid things. Since i have nothing to hide, she can poke all she wants. She as her own pc and i know when she pokes around on mine when i'm not there.

I always lock my computer at work as I have high level rights and I dont want to leave it so people could come and sit at my PC and elevate their rights or "misuse" the system using my account.

At home I don't bother locking my PC as I very rarely leave it long enough for my wife to find my "educational" films ;-) (which are well hidden) plus my wife has her own PC so has no need to use mine
