    I recently gave my wife my iBook. Before doing so I changed the master password that OSX prompts you forr when installing software, looking at keychain items ect. However, now the computer promts her for a password on every startup. How do I change this?

    Also I would like to change the name of the computer from my name to my wife's. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.:confused:

    Both things are set in System Preferences:

    1. System -> Accounts -> Log in options -> Log in automatycally as: <your choice>

    2. Internet & Network -> Sharing -> Computer Name
