Logging into my Mac

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi guys since updating my MacBook Air to the latest version of OS10 I've had an annoying issue when I try to log into my Mac, instead of the user panel coming up and being able to select my name and enter my password it seems to just go to the apple logo and i can't for the life of me work out how to log in. I have to resort to restarting a few times until it decides to work properly. Has anyone else got this and has worked out a work around for the issue, I have emailed Apple about this so hopefully they sort it.

Subject line sums it up. I actually noticed this a few times prior to updating yesterday. I just put my Mac to sleep all night, and this morning all I had to do was lift the lid on my MBA and do my thing. I'm not quite sure what I did though yesterday to finally get to the screen where I could enter my log-in credentials. I'm going to email Apple accessibility about this too, and tweet to @AppleSupport. I've tweeted them a couple times and they got right back to me.

I think I have seen this issue. For me, if this happens, just restart voiceOver and it will begin to work. I'm not totally certain that what you're seeing is what I've seen, but try that.

Same here. I restart VO and things are back to normal.
