How come the switch user option is missing from my lock screen?

I upgrade to Lion my iMac Core 2 Duo and now when I lock the screen the switch user option is missing from the lock screen, you just have to cancel o renter as the original user, so that if another member of my family wants to switch and use the mac he or she cannot do it.
This is what I am talking about (image taken from a lion review): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/134544/forum/Schermata%2007-2455766%20alle%2011.05.12.pn g
The switch user option is totaly absent, I just have the cancel.
It that a bug or what?
Please note this happens only when I lock the screen from the screensaver, i.e. requesting the password to restart from the screensaver, if I get to the login windows all users appears correctly and people can switch back and forth.
Thank you.

I just talked to apple support.  They said Lion doesn't support this feature.  They gave me a work-around, which was to disable requiring a password in the screen saver.  Then enable user switching so it appears in the top right of the banner.  Note that since the screen saver no longer locks the screen, in order to actually lock the screen the user must click on the upper right user list and select something like "Login user...".
This issue has left me disappointed with apple for a few reasons.  Hopefully someone at apple will take note:
1. Apple removed a useful feature.
2. Apple did not provide a response to this thread which would have been the best forum to inform users of this change.  It would have saved me and apple one long phone call.

  • How come the iPhone 5 randomly deletes songs from my playlists?, How come the iPhone 5 randomly deletes songs from my playlists?

    I Keep making my playlists perfect than after two days it'll delete a bunch of tracks, it's always the same ones too:
    Desperate Measures, Haven't Had Enough, almost all of the albums Picaresque, and Her Majesty The Decemberists, all of the albums Gords Gold, and The King is Dead, and the songs Haven't Met You Yet and Hotel California.
    Why is it doing this?

    I had the same problem but only on my iphone 4. I had songs which showed on my iphone playlists on my mac but were not on my iphone. My solution was to delete the playlist from my iphone and also delete the songs from the artists in the music section of the iphone. Don't know why but this doesn't seem to work by only deleting the playlist.
    Create a brand new smart playlist from the music library on your computer and drag this to your iphone icon.
    This solved my problem . Hope it helps.

    How do I switch users on wifi sync for example my Mac has two users one apples MacBook pro the other is my name I want to switch from apples MacBook pro to my name how is this done?

    Try connecting the iPad to the computer that you do not want to WiFi sync with and uncheck the WiFi sync option in iTunes. Then click on Apply. Reboot the iPad and see if that does the trick.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.

  • How to avoid the switch user screen after screen saver

    HP Pavilion HPE, Model: h8-1280t, Intel i7,. Win 7 Home Edition - 64 bit - brand new
    Following screen saver, computer returns to a "Switch User" screen.  There is only 1 user and I want to avoid going to that screen since it dramatically slows the recognition and return function.  How can I go from Screen Saver directly back to the screen I was working on without going through the Switch User screen first?

    Hi,
    Open windows Control Panel, open Personalization, click the Screen Saver link in the bottom right and in the following window remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'.  Click Apply, then Ok to save this setting.

  • I have 10.3.1, how come the CD's I burn won't play in my vehicle?

    I have itunes 10.3.1, how come the CD's I burn won't play in my vehicle?

    I have been having issues with edited tracks from Toast/CD Spin Doctor that I send to my iTunes library, so that I might burn them onto a CD at a later date.
    For example, when I try to hear my 3:42 edited track of a tune I had just sent over from Spin Doctor to iTunes, instead of hearing 3:42 of the "edited track", I only hear the first 3:42 of the raw "unedited" track.  In other words, if my raw Spin Doctor file had 20 seconds of silence before the track started, I would hear that first 20 seconds in my iTunes file instead of the edited file.
    Personally, I think Apple needs to allow us Mac users to have a "download previous version" option when serious bugs like this appear on the updates.  Seems they give Windows users links to older versions, but for us Mac users, they make it hard for us to easily find older versions.  I feel like I'm being held hostage waiting for the next version, or patch.
    And when I try to report the issue to Apple, when I go to the "What version of iTunes are you using?", they still don't have version 10.3 listed in their pulldown menus (as of 7/7/11).
    If you want me to plunk down money for Lion, then you better get my iTunes back to where I could use it again.
    Sorry for the rant, I've been in a major vinyl transfer-to-CD groove in the last month, and this just ruins my momentum. Apple has really disappointed me.

  • HT204088 How come all our purchased were not deducted from the redeem card number entered yesterday and have deducted my credit card instead ?

    My sun has entered like he always does his redeem card gift and purchased a sereis of song yesterday.  How come any of his purchased were deducted from his redeem card and were all charge to my credit card instead?  No amount are showing up under the my account name like usual.  Normally we see the total amount of our gift card and we are able to see that number dropped after each purchase...
    Hope I will get some answers...

    It looks like the only graphics card option for this model is the GeForce GT 630 (2 GB). The GT 630 is not a large powerful card, so it is conceivable that the bracket isn't installed with integrated graphics or a low-end graphics card that doesn't require it. The "graphics card bracket" would mosr likely be installed with larger more powerful cards like the GeForce GTX680, Radeon HD7770, etc. Typically, the videos on HPs website are used for hundreds of different models and may show optional items not installed on a particular computer or may not show items that are installed. Just because a part is or isn't shown in the video, doesn't mean your specific computer is going to be the same.

    in the tracing drop down menu, how come the custom is greyed out and can't be selected? It looks like its disabled!!

    cc2014,
    Have you selected an image?
    Unless a good explanation appears, you may start onthe list below.
    The following is a general list of things you may try when the issue is not in a specific file (you may have tried/done some of them already); 1) and 2) are the easy ones for temporary strangenesses, and 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences); 5) is a list in itself, and 6) is the last resort.
    1) Close down Illy and open again;
    2) Restart the computer (you may do that up to 3 times);
    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
    4) Move the folder (follow the link with that name) with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible);
    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (follow the link with that name, Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, Item 15) applies to CC, CS6, and maybe CS5);
    Even more seriously, you may:
    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool (if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC), and reinstall.

  • How do I switch user in  Common Provider 11.1.1.3 ?

    Hi,
    After I login to Smartview in Excel using Common Provider 11.1.1.3, I don't seem to be able to change my login ID. It always connects me automatically as my 1st login ID.
    how do I switch user in Common Provider 11.1.1.3 ?

    I have found that in 11.1.1.3 what John says actually doesn't work every time.
    .... very annoying.
    If you do the steps John said and it still doesn't work. Do it again. But this time close Excel after you disconnet and then reopen Excel. This will work every time.
    Kind of a bug in my opinion but haven't bother chasing after it with Oracle

  • How comes the Ipad mini isn't Retina Display if it has the same resolution as the New iPad?

    How comes the Ipad mini isn't Retina Display if it has the same resolution as the New iPad?

    The iPad mini doesn't have the same resolution as the "new iPad".
    iPad 3 & 4 (retina) = 2048x1536 pixels
    iPad 1 & 2 (original) = 1024x768
    iPad mini = 1024x768
    Apple likely didn't put a retina screen in the iPad mini to keep cost down and to have an option to upgrade the iPad mini to a retina screen down the road, in a year or two.  It could be however that the pixel density of 2048x768 at 9" poses a problem for the viewer, in that text and features might be rendered too small or too thin for the average buyer/consumer.

  • Anyone know how come the iPad 2 from Apple HK Online Store still unavailable?

    Anyone know how come the iPad 2 from Apple HK Online Store still unavailable?
    Did Apple offer engrave service purchase from other retail store outside?

    As we are just fellow users, I don't think anybody here will know why they are unavailable (except for demand possibly being higher than supply). In terms of Apple engraving I think you can only get that direct from Apple - whether other stores offer their own engraving service I don't know.

    Um.....you're not writing Apple here.   This is a user to user forum.  But, perhaps you should have looked at some more pictures of iPads prior to ordering one.  All iPads (Black face or White face) have silver metal bodies, that wrap up the side to the glass front.

  • On screen lock screen, the keyboard does not work, switching to the switch-user screen the keyboard works again

    Mac OS-X 10.7.5, Mac Air.
    This began about 5 to 7 days ago.
    Steps to reproduce:
    Step 1:
    Close the lid, or the system 'powers down', or goes to the screen saver mode.
    Step 2:
    Open the lid, press the power button, or what ever to wake up the Mac Air
    The "Enter your password" screen is presented.
    They keyboard is not responsive, I cannot type anything.
    The touch pad works, I can power on/off the machine.
    They keyboard is not functional.
    Result: I cannot log in again.
    Expected behavior: The keyboard should be working I should be able to unlock the screen.
    Workarounds:
    Then click on my name, or any other user of the machine and it works fine.
    I can now unlock the screen and return to where I was.
    Expected behavior:
    I should not have to go to the "Switch User Screen" to log back in.

    More detail:  Some keys on the keyboard do work, ie: caps lock toggles the led, and the function keys across the top seem to work {that is I can adjust brightness, and so forth}
    the letter and numbers, and perhap others do not work.
