I have been previously using Mountain Lion and just got a new Mac with Yosemite.
On Mountain Lion, when I turned my system on, I was presented a grey password screen to decrypt my hard drive. With Yosemite, when I turn my system on, I am given the login screen immediately.
Does this indicate that the hard drive is not encrypted and therefore not decrypting? The FileVault option in Preferences shows that FileVault is on.
