and where are you logging into?
Is this something at work?
using my network mobile account ,when i type in my password to login from the screensaver it takes a very long time and then goes back to the screensaver. actually it takes a long time to accept my password always.is it possible that it is timing out at the screensaver. if i type in the name and password for the admin account for the local login it works right away.any idea what's going on? the machine is a macbook pro 2.53 ghz mid 2009 model. it's running 10.5.8. Sorry if i left out any crucial info...It's late and I'm tired....thanks in advance.
