OS X :: Password On Initial Login Disabling?

Jan 31, 2009

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. So could anyone help me out on how to avoid and disable this?

OS X :: Password Hints From Screensaver Login Prompt

Jul 20, 2010

First of all, how do I get my password hint to show up from the screensaver login/password prompt? I have my password and hint set up so that only people close to me will be able to figure it out in case they ever need to use my laptop, however at the moment the hint doesn't even show up. Also, I'm aware that you can change the text to the login page for user accounts, but is there any way to change the text for the screensaver login prompt? If so, where would I find it in "Library"?

OS X V10.4 :: Disabling Automatic Login?

Jun 3, 2012

I sometimes have other people using my mac and it automatically logs in to my account. I do not have "disable automatic log in" chcked and have read/heard it is a god idea to have it checked. I have a few questions about disabling automatic log in though. SInce I am "admin" on my Mac, does that mean if i disable automatic log in do I need to set up a new password or will my "admin" one be just fine and/or used?If I check the "require password to wake this computer or screen saver" will that password also be my "admin"?

OS X :: Login Prompt Not Shown When Wake Up From Sleep

Mar 11, 2009

Am I the only person who has issues with this sometimes refusing the show the login prompt when it wakes up, leaving you with a black screen? The system is still responsive, but all you can do is move the mouse, since there is no dialog. Does this ever happen to anyone else? Also is there any way to clear it aside from power-cycling the machine, and doing "killall loginwindow"?

MacBook Pro :: Windows 7 Cannot Access Lion SMB Share, No Login Prompt

Apr 15, 2012

I am able to access my Windows 7 machine's shares on my Mac (Lion 10.7.3) through SMB with no problems at all. However, I am unable to access my Mac's shares on my Windows machine. 

I have been fighting with this issue for hours and haven't found a solution yet. I've done a bunch of Googling and have found plenty of posts related to my issue, but no solutions. Everyone seems to be at least receiving a login prompt when they try to connect to a Mac OS X Lion Samba share from a Windows 7 machine, but I am not. All I get is "Windows cannot connect to \MAC" after ~15-20 seconds of waiting. 

Here's what I've tried:Reconfigured all of my settings on both the Windows and Mac systems, then restarted. Windows: set to 40- and 56-bit encryption for File Sharing, instead of 128-bit.Windows: network discovery and file sharing enabled.Windows: Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level to Send NTMLv2 response only” to “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session if negotiated as suggested in another post.Windows: verified workgroup as WORKGROUP.Windows: verified Windows Firewall options for File Sharing.Windows: cleared credentials for my Mac's share in the Credential Manager, still no login prompt.Windows: reinserted my Mac's credentials in Credential Manager for the share, same issue. Mac: Enabled File Sharing, enabled SMB, enabled my Mac's account.Mac: verified Firewall settings for File Sharing.Mac: verified workgroup as WORKGROUP in WINS/NETBIOS configuration. For both systems: verified IP configuration as DHCP under the same gateway and subnet mask--they're clearly under the same network.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Blank Screen From Idling And Prompt User To Login When Awaken?

Jul 1, 2012

I want to stop using updated Mac OS X 10.5.8 (I think it happens in 10.7.4 too IIRC)'s Flurry screen saver and just let Mac OS X 10.5.8 blank/sleep its screen to save energy, not make Macs (Mac Mini, MacBook Pro, etc.) hot especially in the heat waves, and use less resources. I noticed making display (not the computer) sleep and then waking does not ask me to log in like a screen saver would do. Is there a way to do this for sleeping displays?

OS X :: Password Prompt Before App Install?

Oct 12, 2010

On my MBP, I get prompted for a PW before any program gets installed.

On my iMac, at times I get prompted, other times I don't.

I just downloaded handbrake and installed but there was no PW prompt.

The day before I installed a plug in for Quicktime and was prompted for a PW.

How can I get so that I get prompted for a PW every time before anything gets installed?

OS X :: Stop The Password Prompt?

Sep 24, 2009

this seems pretty basic, but I can't seem to find a way to turn off the password prompt in Mac OSX.

I have an account for my parents, and they don't need a password, but if they try and install software etc - it comes up with the Password Prompt window. Obviously, you don't enter anything into the password field and just continue on, but seeing how there is no password in the first place, why does it still ask for one?

I've been a Mac user for a few years, but have never came across this - I always use a password

OS X :: Screensaver Password Prompt Timeout?

Sep 14, 2007

I have enabled the prompt for a password when waking from screensaver and this works fine as long as I respond to the password prompt quickly. However, if I don't respond fairly quickly then the password prompt disappears leaving a black screen with just the mouse pointer visible. No matter what I type I can't bring the password prompt back up and therefore can't gain access. The only way I can do this is to press the power button and wait for 5 minutes or so before bringing it back out of sleep and typing my password more quickly.

The machine is a new iMac 2.4G 24" if that makes any difference. All latest updates applied.

OS X Mavericks :: FaceTime Password Prompt?

Jun 21, 2014

Both iCloud and FaceTime are continually prompting for passwords.  Hitting 'cancel' usually dismisses the iCloud box, but the FaceTime box just keeps reappearing. 

I don't want to enter either password until I'm ready to, and I especially could care less about FaceTime because I don't use it on this computer.  It can go away completely.  So how can I shut it off and tell it to stop bothering me?

MacBook :: No Password Set But Prompt Keeps Coming On Startup

Apr 20, 2012

I used to have a password on my Macbook but I got annoyed of having to type it in every time I closed/opened the lid and the Macbook woke up. I got rid of the password through my system settings, but the prompt kept coming up when I opened the Macbook, but there was no password. I would just leave the password field blank and hit enter. Okay, no big deal. I just restarted my Macbook because it was lagging with video, and its asking me for a password to start up. I tried leaving it blank and just hitting Log In, the prompt shakes back and forth. I tried my old password before I got rid of it, the prompt just shakes. I don't have a password, why am I getting a prompt on startup and how do I get past it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Does Screen Saver Prompt For Secure Disk Image Password

Mar 17, 2012

I go into System Preferences->Dektop & Screen Saver.  As the program "loads" availabe image sources and such I get a pop-up requesting a password to my secure disk image. Yes, I have a secure disk image in my home directory. Yes, the secure disk image is currently "locked" (Not mounted in finder). 

I click cancel (a few times, probably 2 maybe 3 times) and things continue along fine. I select a photo source that I want for a screen save and exit peferences. I then go an start the screen saver (I'm using Hot-Corners). I get the message "Looking for pictures....." for , well...basically forever... 

Sure enough I touch the mouse to leave my screen saver and there is the pop-up again.  Asking for me to unlock my secure disk image. 

I thought this might be related to Spotlight.  I tried reading several threads and have gone as far as taking my entire hard-drive/volume and putting it into the "Privacy" tab under spotlight. 

how I might get it so the "Desktop & Screen Saver" stop prompting me to unlock my secure disk image?  (WITHOUT having to make sure the disk image is unlocked before I sleep my screen or open the screen saver utlity) As always, I am only speculating that this is Spotlight related so that could be a red-herring....

Mac Mini :: Clicking On User Does Not Bring Up Password Prompt In Fast Switch

Jun 12, 2012

I have two users on my mac mini running OS X 10.7.4, both are administrators. When I click on my username in the upper right hand corner of the screen and select the second user, I can type in the password and "rotate" on over to the other user.
