I upgraded to Mountain Lion yesterday, when I enter my password, Apple I.D. for iCloud it just sits there. I changed my password twice already thinking this would solve the problem but it did not. ?????

    I have exactly the same problem, on both my iMac and MacBook, both after installing Mountain Lion.


    Yet, my password still works for Apple Store and Forums.

    I have the same problem.  Thought icloud password would be same as Apple ID, but apparently it is not.  Really need to send extensive notes from ipad3 to cloud to get them to iMac 10.8.2.  Have been trying for ages.  Thought it was my error.  Please let us know if you figure this out.  I'll keep following, hoping someone will chime in.  My password also works for App Store and iTunes.

    Hi, bumps01.  Was this password/user name thing ever resolved?  We cannot be the only ones w/this problem.  I have been following this in other areas, but see no resolution.  Someone writing as BigCrisp explained it perfectly, but they directed him to this discussion and now I can't find him.  Pls letmeknow what happened.  TIA

    Can you login at www.icloud.com?

    CSound1, thank you!  I was able to login as you suggested.  Oddly, my notes were there.  Maybe each time I attempted and was booted for wrong user name/password, I was actually connecting.  Whatever, now I can edit on iMac and print. 

    I hope this works for Bumps01 as well.


    Gratefully, Lynn
