    So I don't know what to look for.

    I'm trying to share the screen of a Mac Mini on my MacBook Air. One of the profiles on my MBA (J) has trouble screen sharing. The issue is I have to try to connect 3 times before it lets me. On the other profile (K) I can connect the first time using the same credentials. The only thing that changes is the profile on the MBA I'm on, so I'm assuming it's something specific within that profile.

    Any suggestions?

    SOLVED (Kind of):

    So, I have no idea what the actual issue was, but here's how I solved the problem.

    1. On the computer I was trying to connect to, in my case the Mac Mini, I changed the Computer Name under System Preferences>Sharing.

    2.Then I logged onto the MBA (computer I was trying to connect from) on to the profile that was having the issue. It saw the new Computer Name.

    3. I tried to screen share and it first did NOT accept my credentials.

    4. Tried again and it worked.

    5. Every time after I have managed to successfully connect the FIRST time.
