With my job in IT, I've had to attempt to get into a user's computers with their profile without shutting it down and they are not around. Sometimes I find the password under the keyboard or written down someplace. I can't remember ever just guessing one.

I used to do that when I would be installing a printer or a scanner for others when I worked at the Service Desk.

Most bosses would have their password written on something in plain sight. You could usually spot it because the network admins made everybody change their password every 90 days, so they'd scratch one out and write the new one under it.
