you mean while you are logged in, when you open a terminal you are asked for a password? that shouldn't be like that? or did i misunderstand something?

Use
sudo -i It'll give you a persistent root prompt so you won't be asked for a password for every sudo command.

P.S. If you run a lot of sudo commands frequently, consider changing your password to something easier to type. There's a fine line between security and usability, and you're clearly too far on the security side if you don't want to type your own password.
