Trying this again as I can't get any joy.

 

My iMac will go to sleep but after 1 - 2 hours the password prompt will come up and stay there.  I have the latest version of Mountain Lion (10.8.2), I have all programs closed, I've run every clean up utility in Onyx, changed the battery in my Trackpad, restarted the iMac and it still won't stop doing this.

 

It only seems to have started in the last week or two and I have had Mountain Lion longer than that, in fact it seems to be since I got my iPhone 5 which I have had a lot of trouble syncing - maybe something to do with iTunes upgrade for iOS 6??

 

Any help greatly appreciated as it's already burnt an image of the password prompt on the screen and I have to do a full shut down after every use and start it up again when I want to use it.

 

Things are so bad I'm thinking of getting a Windows machine so you can see help is urgently needed :)


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Intel 3.06 GHz Core 2 Duo
