OS X :: System Always Asking For Password To Login

Mar 31, 2010

I am running Snow Leopard on a MacBook Pro. For some reason when I went to install a program upgrade it wouldn't take my password. So after a lot of mess I finally put in the install DVD and changed the password. Problem is that now every time I start up the computer I have to log in. Used to be that if I shut down I didn't have to log in when I started it up again. Now it always asks for the password.

OS X :: Administrator / Password / Keychain Login

Sep 14, 2010

A week ago, my computer (Macbook) "crashed". When I powered it up, it would go to the grey apple screen, then it would go to a blue screen, then it would switch to a light blue screen, then back to the darker blue screen, etc and never fully boot into OSX. I finally found my install discs for OSX and reinstalled my operating system from scratch, formatted my hard drive, and started new. Once I reinstalled, I realized how outdated and different everything looked... and I realized I was running OSX 10.4. So from there, I found my Leopard disc (10.5), put that in, and "Upgraded" my system to 10.5.

And basically here's where I'm at now:........................

I was wondering if there is a way to disable the login prompt every time I close and open my MacBook Pro screen? I do not mind the initial login screen, when I just turn on my laptop but having to do this every time my computer goes into screensaver mode or I close the screen is annoying, especially in class.

OS X :: Login Keychain Password Removing?

Mar 2, 2009

Ever since I got my macbook, I've been trying to get everything in sync between it and my imac using mobile me. I had a lot of trouble with saved passwords and other things not syncing so I deleted both keychains and started over fresh. Now everytime I log on to either my imac or mac book I'mn asked for a password to access my keychain.

How can I disable this? Have a made a mistake somewhere in all this configuring? I've never really messed with keychain so I really didn't know what I was doing.

OS X :: Finding An App For Auto Login With Password?

Mar 15, 2009

I just have a little question about starting my MacBook Pro, nothing too important, just trying to further streamline my OS X experience.

Currently, I am using the Schedule... feature in the Energy Saver portion of Sys Prefs (which is, oddly enough, represented by a energy hogging incandescent) to start my MBP each weekday, then sleep it three minutes later in case I decide not to use it. This is useful in that it cuts 30 seconds out of the startup/login process, but it only takes the process halfway (it doesn't log in). I could enable auto login to complete the process, but then my password would be rendered ineffective, and others who occasionally use my laptop would have instantaneous access to my account and files. Is there any way I can auto login then promptly lock the computer and head back to the login screen? Is there a scheduling application I could use to do the same?

OS X :: Login Keychain Password Reset?

May 11, 2009

How do I reset my "login" keychain password? I can't remember it. If it needs deleting, I don't have many passwords stored in that since I use Firefox most of the time and it doesn't store passwords in the keychain.

But when I use Safari it keeps asking for my login keychain password repeatedly.
