I upgraded to 10.4 and someware down the line I said yes to something that every so ofen (very often) request that I enter my password.
I work with a number of systems at a time on each of two or three PC's.
At times I may take over a couple of hours before I get back to something, and this may only be checking what is already displayed.
It is mandatory that I disinstall this, I don't know what it is and were to start looking.

If this is work done in the terminal you can get a root permission terminal with
sudo -iand then as long as that terminal is open, you will not be asked for a password again.

If using GUI apps you can use
gksudo appname eg gksudo nautilus and that will give you root privileges while that window is left open.

Be careful, however, as it is easy to forget you are root, and do a lot of harm quite easily this way.
