I don't use an Admin password, but OS 10.74 requires a password, not a blank password, so run Cocktail or Onyx.  I enjoy having no password, and no one else uses my laptop.   It's a nuisance to add a password, run Cocktail or Onyx, then delete the password in Prefs.   The authors of these two utilities assert that Apple requires a password, not the authors of these two fine utilities.


Anyone know a workaround so the password space can be blank ?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
