    Hi there everyone,

    I was wondering if there is a way to disable the login prompt every time I close and open my MacBook Pro screen? I do not mind the initial login screen, when I just turn on my laptop but having to do this every time my computer goes into screensaver mode or I close the screen is annoying, especially in class. So could anyone help me out on how to avoid and disable this? Thanks.:apple:

    go to system preferences->security-> and the first checkbox should read "require password to wake this computer from sleep or screen saver" mak sure that isnt checked
