    It goes away once you enter your password ;)

    But seriously I dont think you can, why do you want to? Just a security feature so random people using your iPad dont download $100 worth of games.

    that all depends on how many times a hour the darn thing ask for my password. i wouldn't mind if it ask me
    like 1 time everytime i turn it on. but once it's turned on and i have gave it my password for that session i should not keep asking for
    my password. then yes it becomes very annoying epecially when i had just entered my password like a minute ago.
    so if i download like 5 apps for example do i really have to enter it every single min. i should have the option to shut it off. it is
    after all MY ipad.

    Go to settings;general,restrictions,allowed content-require password.You can choose between immediately and 15 minutes.If you choose 15 minutes,you will have to enter your password the first time,but not again for the next 15 minutes if you are purchasing multiple apps.

    I don't think it's possible to stop it permanently.It's a security feature to limit unauthorized app store and iTunes purchases.
