Hi,

I just got the Macbook 12 as a secondary laptop. I keep getting a popup window asking for my icloud password. Not sure if the apple id is same as the icloud password but I have never had this happen continuously on my other Mac running Yosemite.

I went to icloud pref pane and logged out and logged back in.

Same thing keeps happening.

isnt the apple id same as icloud password. I dont remember entering a different icloud password. Is there a way to reset icloud password?

This is beyond annoying. I don't want to have anything to do with iCloud. How do you stop this? Whatever happened to Don't Remind Me Again choices?
