Laptop BIOS Passwords - Best Practice
Do you set both the BIOS Supervisor and User passwords (obviously a different one for each) for your staff laptops?
I do this and we've had some staff wibbling on about how they have to enter "too many passwords" - d'oh....... it's two ffs....! One for the BIOS and one to log on - hardly takes any time does it?!

we set only an admin password. The password is a formula so it can't be overlooked and used everywhere.

Admin only - don't see the need for the other one.

Admin only, given that they're encrypted.

Admin only, after our annual security compliance audit's both Bios passwords and local admin passwords vary between departments\directorates.
