Hi, I just installed iAlertU and played around. Now iAlertU automatically starts upon boot, but it will not stop while entering my password. I installed iAlertMe on my iPhone but its not connecting, since I didn't ticked the box in iAlertU, sure. I rebooted my mac but I cannot stop starting iAlertU so it does what is should very good...;-) If someone nows the tric to solve this please...I've noticed I'm not the only one, thx!!

    Hi there. I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner.

    From what you're saying your password is all ok, but when iAlertU is armed, entering the password isn't having any effect. Does this only happen when iAlertU arms at startup, or does it happen every time you arm?

    For example, if you arm iAlertU manually using a remote, the hotkey, or the system menu, can you then disarm it by entering your password?

    If you can, then it suggests that some other process is taking keyboard focus away from iAlertU after it has armed. I have seen this once, where after arming, the OS popped up a question dialog asking for a wifi access password, but that dialog was __behind__ the ialertu lock screen. so entering my password had no effect because it was the dialog getting it, not iAlertU.

    I'm glad you got your mac back. I'll leave this item open to track the keyboard focus issue, but I'll move it to the bug tracker.

    Hi, well it happens only once when I let iAlertU put on alarm automatically after reboot. It never happens when i manually alarmed. I haven't used that setting again. But as you said about keyboard focus..upon reboot the Skype package always pops up asking if I really trust this since its from the internet.. if that dialog takes the keyboard focus..possible. thx
