Garage door Locked???

Just wondering how you guys do as far as your car garage with automatic opener and as far as locking the garage? This mainly applies to your wife and her taking the car out of the garage and using the opener. In most cases i would think it would be an inconvenience for her to have to lock and unlock the door then put it up. You want to have it locked for protection of thieves but how inconvenient would it be to have to unlock it and put it up, lock it back, ect?

I guess its personal preference but I'm just trying to gain insight on these things.

The only way I lock my garage with the automatic opener is to disconnect the automatic door opener at the top of the door and then slide the lock into place. The fastest way to get a bent and beat up door is to have it locked and someone forgets and hits the garage door opener switch with it locked, can anyone say new door.
I do not worry about whether the garage door is locked. You get in and my welcoming committee of 2 english springer spaniels can easily handle the problem. They do not take kindly to anyone in the house or garage that is not invited in my me or my wife.....
