is to create a password for your machine.
Four years ago I bought an iMac and have just updated to Lion with no real problem until....I tried to use Cocktail and then Onyx, and in both attempts I was asked to supply a password.
When we bought this Mac it was set up for automatic log-in , i.e. no password, Until now I could turn on Cocktail and when the log in window appeared I could leave it blank and just click the blue button, and get to work. Now ( with Lion)it seems I must supply a password. I do not have a password, and prefer to not have to deal with that. Any ideas as to how I can get around the sudden need for a password? Any ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dave
