    Hi,
    Mostly satisfied with Yosemite but there are very irritating occurrences. I always stay logged in to my gmail account, likewise with Facebook, because I'm regularly receiving messages.
    Although I haven't put my mac air into sleep mode or logged out of gmail and FB, Yosemite is constantly logging me out of those two sites.

    I'm no geek so any plain talking advice would be much appreciated.
    thanks.

    p.s. I have searched the forums, because I'm sure there are others experiencing this problem, but could find nothing. But apologies if I'm duplicating.

    System Preferences and Keychain Access

    Does each account appear as it should in the Internet Accounts pane of System Preferences?

    In Keychain Access, is there more than one item for either account?

    Thanks for your response.
    I've got 3 gmail accounts and 2 Facebook ones. Different passwords.
    When you write internet accounts pane, is that in security and privacy under system preferences?

    No. In Mavericks the pane is named 'Internet Accounts' and appears alongside the 'iCloud' pane, when sorting is categorised (not alphabetical). Maybe the name of the pane is different in Yosemite …
