    Hi Guys,
    As you can tell by the title over the last week the itunes icon in the dock occassionally bounces once for no reason i can find.
    What i can say is the following:-
    1. No music is playing
    2. No device is connected
    3. nothing appears in notifications
    4. Arrrrgh its just done it again
    5. Itunes version 12.4.2.4
    6. No downloads are involved
    7. El Capitan version 10.11.6
    8. It doesnt seem to happen when i am using the itunes window but does when using any other apps window
    Any ideas guys
    Thanks

    Seen this in sierra.
    Have no idea either. Maybe frequency is lower than yours.
    I just choose to ignore for good.

    Yep. It's normally expecting a password.

    Did you try starting in Safe Mode? Same behavior? After that, does the behavior continue in a normal start-up?

    Edit : Earlier, sign out for iCloud was mentioned. Did you do the same for iTunes?

    If Safe mode didn't work, have you tried disabling iTunes Helper in your user account login items located at :
    System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Select your user name -> Login items
