This annoys me intensely.
I visit a number of websites frequently, where there is the same option at login. At all of them, the website keeps me logged in, so that I just need to connect to that website later - even days or weeks later - and I'm logged in.
Presumably, Optus is just being lazy by not implementing this functionality, but leaving the option on the login page because it looks good.
I consider such "laziness" utterly reprehensible.
It's long past time for Optus to get its act together.
