i keep entering an "application specific password" on my MAC PRO computer running Lion (10.7.5) and it keeps getting lost somehow every so often. sometimes after a month and sometimes after a couple of days. this means i have to go back to the Google Application Specific Password site and generate a new login and put it back in the prompt for my gmail account.


any ideas on how to fix this or what is going on? works fine on my mac book pro.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1), with 64 bit Win7 Boot Camp | iCloud
