Hello Keith,

I wrote a little longer text on this subject on our blog: http://www.axcrypt.net/blog/leaving-computer-axcrypt/ .

The short and long of it is that requiring password entry each time is not likely to increase the net security, on the contrary especially if it leads you to think that it’s safe to leave your computer physically accessible for anyone to use without requiring a Windows password.
