I found a "feature" I don't like and want to turn off.

If I start an app doing a task (Handbrake for example) and then switch to the login screen (to lock the computer before bed), when I get up in the morning and login again Handbreak will be at the same stage it was when I locked the screen in the evening (so the whole point of doing it at night was nixed)

Any ideas if this is a new feature of Yosemite ?  I can;t find anything in the Energy Saver preferences that would account for it.

Try System prefs Security->General, make sure require password immediately after sleep is checked, then just lock the display by pressing ctrl-shift-eject (or ctrl-shift-power on a laptop). That should sleep the display only, but still require a password to unlock.

Look under Energy Saving > Power Adapter. Uncheck "Prevent computer from sleeping automatically when the display is off".

I had to do that as it happened to me after I upgraded to Yosemite.

I would think that Caffeine might make sure that your computer doesn't turn off.
