I had my Mac pro retina with the genius two days ago and he re-set the keychains  now every 3 - 5 min Mac OS X wants my password. Looking under my Keychains I unlocked everything & still every few minutes a window comes up asking to put in my password so OS X can have Keychain access. This never occurred until my Keychains were cleared by Apple employee. I will wait tell the window comes up and try to copy it to here.

    Back up all data.


    Launch the Keychain Access application in any of the following ways:


    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)


    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.


    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Keychain Access in the icon grid.


    Select the login keychain from the list on the left side of the Keychain Access window. If your default keychain has a different name, select that.


    If the lock icon in the top left corner of the window shows that the keychain is locked, click to unlock it. You'll be prompted for the keychain password, which is the same as your login password, unless you've changed it.


    Right-click or control-click the login entry in the list. From the menu that pops up, select Change Settings for Keychain "login". In the sheet that opens, uncheck both boxes, if not already unchecked.


    From the menu bar, select


    Keychain Access Preferences First Aid


    If the box marked Keep login keychain unlocked is not checked, check it.




    Keychain Access Keychain First Aid


    from the menu bar and repair the keychain. Quit Keychain Access.
