I have my settings as such, but when I power-on my laptop, it logs me right in, with no prompt.
Does anyone else have this problem?

I had this problem on my desktop after I had set on autologin and then set it off for myself. Even though I set it off in the user settings box, it remained on and automatically logged my in without requiring a password. I finally fixed it by locating and removing the following line in the /etc/group file: "nopasswdlogin:x:118:username"
Try editing the Display Manager configuration as root, using
One of these for LightDM (I think that it is now default):
[wilf@comp ~]$ ls /etc/lightdm keys.conf lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf users.conf lightdm.conf lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf.old lightdm.conf~ lightdm-kde-greeter.conf
It will probably be
lightdm.conf, so run:
sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
For GDM (Gnome's)
sudo nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf
And for KDM (KDE's)
sudo nano /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc
Look in the .conf files for 'Auto' - open each in a text editor (e.g. gedit) , Ctrl+F in each and type 'auto'
BEFORE ANY CHANGES ARE MADE, backup the configuration file you are editing:
For example, if you editing
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, run this first:
cp /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.old
