    I know this is quite unlikely to happen but still.......
    i didn't set it up for the same reason Ivy, it's just a bit nerve wracking. Maybe I'm a big chicken....

    I read a story where someone had tried to hack into this persons Mac so Apple locked it down, BUT it all went very wrong because he didn't know where his Recovery Key was, It took days of searching and he eventually remembered he took a photo and managed to find it in his time machine backups.
    Had he not found it his Macbook would have been locked forever.....Scary!
