How do you get auto login to work? It ignores the setting during installation as well as the settings in the System Settings GUI.
Auto login isn't working with SDDM and systemd:
Incompatibility with systemd
Affected DMs: Entrance, MDM, SDDM, SLiM
Some display managers are not fully compatible with systemd, because they reuse the PAM session process. It causes various problems on second login, e.g.:
NetworkManager applet does not work,
PulseAudio volume cannot be adjusted,
login failed into GNOME with another user.
See the following bugtracker reports for more details:
SDDM:  (fixed in git master), although it doesn't work with autologin 
SLiM:  
I copy and pasted from the bottom of: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/display_manager
This is just a suggestion but, you might try switching to KDM.
Auto login with SDDM is working well for me with netrunner rolling installed in a Virtualbox virtual machine.
I just tried using the GUI to set up auto-login and it worked for me. did it ask for a password when you hit apply?
We fixed sddm up as we had autologin issues on the live media aswell. So it should now work also when installed.
Have you ran any updates since installation?
If not the first updates need to be run from the command line:
sudo pacman -Syuu
if you would like an icon in the system tray for update notifications you'll need to install octopi-notifier.
PS. you should check for updates at the least every 2-3 weeks, most the time updates come in every week on Sunday, but can sometimes take much longer if there are any major issues (like the move to systemd or the symlinking of /bin, /sbin & /usr/sbin to /usr/bin). Manjaro tries to deal with any problems they find and correct them using the manjaro-system package so that their users don't have to.

I have the old iso so I did a system update from Octopi. I went to System Settings Other and Login Screen. I have EnableAuto-Login checked and my user selected. I have Preselect User as Specified with my User selected. I have Enable Password-Less Login selected for my user. It still asks for a password at restart. What am I doing wrong?

The System Settings--> Advanced --> Other --> Login Screen is for KDM.
Use System Settings --> System --> Startup and Shutdown --> Login Screen for SDDM. The advanced tab has the auto login checkbox and a dropdown box to select the user.
Hmm.. Maybe you need to manually edit the config file. Make sure to have the correct AutoUser=username and LastUser=username written in /etc/sddm.conf
