    I've changed my Apple ID password. For some reason, my Mac isn't accepting the new password yet (even though I can sign in to my Apple Store with the new password).

    So I keep getting a pop-up: "The Mac can't connect with iCloud because of the problem. Open iCloud preferences to fix this problem." Then I have two options - "iCloud Preferences..." or "Later".

    So I click later. And 10 seconds later, the box reappears. So I click later. And 10 seconds later, the box reappears. So I click later. And 10 seconds later, the box reappears. So I click later. And 10 seconds later, the box reappears. So I click later...

    You see my problem? How can I tell my Mac that I want it to shut the hell up?

    Ok. Seems that 10 seconds is the Apple defined "later" on your machine. :p
    Can you click the other option and try to do something on there?
