    Hello,
    I have MAC OSX 10.5.5 and I'm making myself crazy... I have recently added my wife to my iMac with a second account. I want to make it easier for her to fast switch. Is there a way to have it not ask for a password?

    System Preferences > Accounts, remove passwords from both your accounts. There should be an Admin account that is password protected but that is your choice.

    I looked I'm not seeing where you mean to uncheck the password or whatever

    If you click on reset or change password with an account selected on the left hand sidebar, you can reset the password to nothing. However, you will still be prompted for a password when running software updates or running an automated installer, but you can just click 'OK' or tap the return key to proceed.
