I want to avoid the tediousness of typing the password for my user account on the many times each day that it wakes from sleep, but I want it to require the password whenever it's possible that it has been stolen.

Is there a way to get Win 7 to look for the presence of a predefined wifi network and/or a specific bluetooth device, and if found auto-login the user?

Nope. I personally think it can't be done. Why? It's because Windows doesn't scan for WiFi hotspots when it's locked.

But you can do the same for a USB device.
