Hey guys,
been a few times i've left my mac pro unattended, and on return seen a dialog box popped up. I'm not sure what it is so i been clicking 'cancel' everytime.

Could you guys clarify what the window is actually trying to change?

Nothing showed up on my system-do you have the iCloud package installed? If so, it sounds like it is referring to the cloud syncing of documents in iCloud.

Today I had some weird things happen. I got a prompt saying my iCloud password was invalid. Later when I got home my email passwords had to be re-entered. I started using the laptop and noticed after a full charge I only had a few hours where it use to be 4-6+. The laptop was getting hot and the fans running go I looked at activity viewer and noticed a process called ubd was at 200%. I killed it then it came back to normal. I guess there are still some iCloud issues out there to be worked out.
