    In the last two days every time I open my IPad it prompts me for my iTunes password, if I hit cancel it pops back up again until I enter it. It never did this before and it's annoying. I tried signing out and entering the info in settings, anyone know what I messed up.

    Is iTunes stuck on a download in progress? That might require resubmitting a password. otherwise I'm stumped.

    You might also try to sync with your desktop to see if that fixes it.

    Happened to me on a 'hung up' movie download once. I had to get Apple to cancel order on their end.

    Thanks all, yes it was stuck on a download. "Hotel for IPad" was stuck on an update and I did not notice, I re downloaded it and all is well.

    On a related note, whenever you "purchase" an app (most all the ones I get are free), is iTunes supposed to ask for your password every time?

    I would think it would remember your password.

    iTunes will not prompt for a password for subsequent purchases made within 15 minutes of the initial download.

    I am kind of glad it does!

    How would you feel if someone got ahold of your iPad and accidentally purchased the XA1 Real Time Spectrum Analyzer app for $179.99 or all 422 selections from the "Haydn: The Complete Symphonies" set at 99¢ each! (Actually I wouldn't mind having that!)

    I have the same problem with iTunes constantly asking for my password. It may be a coincidence but it started after I upgraded the OS to version 3.2.1.

    Update: I had a stuck download in iTunes and deleted it and I think the problem is gone. Reading this forum gave me a hint of where to look for the problem. Thanks.

    The upgrade has nothing to do with it. It was doing that on my 1st gen iPod Touch. iTunes has always promted for a password unless you buy something else within that 15 minute time window.
