I have a new Macbook Pro retina display.  I am the only user of the computer, and I would really like to be able to open and use my computer without being asked for my login password everytime.  I have searched this forum for the answer, but I am more confused now than before?  One of the answers says to simply go to "Security & Privacy" > General and simply uncheck the box in front of the line that says "require password ***** after sleep or screen saver begins".  They even show a screen shot clearly showing this box.  The problem is that on my Macbook Pro, when I go to this location, there is NO box in front of that line!  There is a small window where I can choose between "immediately - 1 hour", but that is it.  Am I doing something wrong?  Does anyone know how I can turn off this prompt for the login password?


Thank you!
