How To Lock the Lock

I have trouble getting this lock to lock. I struggle with it everytime I have to secure my laptop. Is there an instruction guide. Is there some trick? Am I supposed to position the lock in a certain diretion? Sometime I get it locked, sometimes I don't. Its a matter of hit or miss. This morning, I can't manage to get it locked.

    I have a Kensington Combination Lock #64516 -- Lock was properly set to a 4 number series and will not now open -- it is hopelessly stuck and won't detach from the computer.

    Any workarounds, or is the cable-cutter my next stop?

If this is a standard cable lock, the lock cylinder has one or two latching bolt. If they are spring loaded and are of the type that just presses and snaps on, then the locking bolt is jamming most likely due to lack of lubrication. All locks need to be lubricated periodically so that they function smoothly. A small amount of WD-40 in the cylinder (where the key is inserted) and on the back (where the locking bolts are) will normally fix this problem. Graphite lubricants will work also but can be messy, or any kind of lite machine oil would work as well. Hope this helps

    Additional info:

    I have also found a few cables that require the key to be inserted and turned prior to locking, but this may not be your case

Why my apple laptop is unlocked

Are you talking about a physical lock or some sort of software lock?
If you have shut down (powered off) your laptop, when you start it up you will get initial conditions for everything. If you have your preferences set to "automatic login" for the main user, that's what's going to happen. That's not very secure. If you don't want that, turn that preference off.
If that's not your question, state your question with more clarity.
