Can we assume you're using GNOME?
If so, when you have the security tab open there is what looks like 2 people on the
right hand side in the password box.
If you click on that there should be 3 choices. What is yours set to?
Thanks Ed, sorry its taken me a while to response, I haven't been on
much recently. I'm actually using KDE. As well as the situation
mentioned above, when I get into KDE I get prompted for my password to
supply to Kwallet, and then I get prompted to enter my Wifi password, at
which point the wifi gets activated and then the firewall get started
for the network adapter. I was using the option 'Store this password for
this user only (encrypted)' which was not retaining it on exit, as a
test I switched to 'Store this password for all users (Unencrypted)'
which seems to be retaining it from the perspective of when I exit and
get back in the password is still there. If the 2nd option has indeed
retained the password, could there be a slight logic error in
networkmanager where 'Store this password for this user only
(encrypted)' seems to be functioning like the option of 'Ask for this
password every time'?
