Before you lose your Mac laptop
Authored by: a_wylie on Mar 09, '11 08:24:35AM

Assuming you want the thief to start using your laptop so you can track him/her, why not have your laptop log in automatically to an ordinary user account created specially for the purpose? You could even have Safari or Firefox as a login item, just for that extra bit of help.

Ok, so you'd have to fast user switch every time you booted up but that's not much of a price to pay for the peace of mind of knowing if your laptop is stolen you've done your best to ensure the thief gives him/herself away.
