    Hey Guys,

    I'm running into an issue with my 17" SR MBP where it keeps asking me to enter in my password twice when waking it from sleep. It's pretty annoying - I'll enter in the correct password and it'll authenticate, but then show the exact same user/pass authentication box again and I have to retype the password.

    Would appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.

    I have encountered this problem occasionally on my MacBook Pro. With me, it has to do with when I put my computer into sleep mode while the screensaver is running. When I wake it from sleep, I enter my password first to unlock it from sleep, then a second time to unlock it from screensaver. This does not happen all the time with me though as it seems to happen with you.

    Ahhhh, you're a genius cwalex18! You're right - one of the auths are from unlocking from sleep and the other is for screen saver. Just had to disable the screensaver. Thanks!! :D

    It also happens if you accidentally open and close it immediately.

    Happens to me as well. Annoying, but doesn't seem like it's hurting anything.
