    I can't even click/open system preferences because I'm stuck on the logging in page so what do I do

    I'm stuck too = cannot get to system preferences because I'm stuck at login page too.
    don't have a wireless keyboard, so I can't enter a thing.  Can I bypass this wireless crap via my second Mac, which uses WIRED mouse and WIRED keyboard?

    Bluetooth is irritating, don't want a thing to do with that feature.

    I have the same problem. It's been giving me this problem since last month.
    Tried restarting the laptop with same results!
    What is going on
