Do you have OSX's auto login feature activated? The article below suggests that could be your problem.

You can only login your work/home PC if you have access to iCloud which requires your Apple ID and login. So making sure that password is strong seems an important step in any case -- strong for me = >11 characters, at least one symbol and at least one UPPER case.

While I have never used BTMM, I notice there is a check box in the iCloud section of System Preferences. Are the settings the same there for both PCs? Assuming yes, you might want to uncheck both PCs, reboot and recheck just incase something is crossed.
