    Whenever I leave my Mac for a few minutes I go back and find the screen saver running. I move the mouse the login window pops up and asks me a username and a password. How can I get rid of it! Its annoying me!

    Thanks guys! :)

    Go to System Prefs > Security and uncheck the box that says "Require password after sleep or screen saver begins"

    Go to System Preferences> Security> General and untick Require Password ... after sleep or screen saver begins.

    Bear in mind though it's good to have if you sue your MBP out and about a lot.

    Edit: Darn it, beaten to it lol.
