    Thank you for reading this. I'm still a bit new to Macs. (I have a PowerMac.) All I want is this; when I turn on my computer, I do NOT want it to require that I enter my password. I have looked all over the place, both in my system preferences/passwords/etc. as well as on the internet, and I can't figure out how to turn that password requirement off. Can you help me? Thank you very much.

    System preferences -> Accounts -> Change password -> Just leave the space for 'new password' blank :)

    If you're using Tiger (10.4.x) go to System Preferences > Accounts > click the lock and enter your password > Click on Login Options > Check the box for Automatically log in as...

    I think it was the same for previous versions of OS X.

    I don't think it's a good idea to have no password

    Or even better: Keep your password, and just enable Automatic log in as <you> under System Preferences -> Accounts -> Login options

    Edit: Just like smokeyrabbit suggests... ;)

    Wow. Thank you all for your quick responses. Psychofreak - once again, I must ask, do you ever sleep? :p
