    My macbook system froze and I shut down by pressing the power button. I
    waited 30 seconds and then restarted the machine. It booted up slowly
    - it had been running for several days without a restart. I opened
    terminal to run the crons and it will not take my administrator
    password, although I have not problem using it for login, accounts and
    other functions. Read like a familiar problem to anyone?

    Dunno -- can you reset your passwords via the SystemPrefs/Users panel?
