    I have a late 09 Macbook Pro 13" with the latest 10.6 OS.
    For some reason every time I turn my airport card on or off the MBP ask for my system password (not wireless password) to do so. I can't seem to find anything online. I've done MainMenu's batch cleaning.

    go to system prefs > security > General
    uncheck "require a password to unlock each system preff pane."
    then go to network and make sure the padlock is unlocked.
