How do you disable keychain password requirements on my iMac? I am the only user.

Keychain password requirements for what? The Keychain is only used if you want it to be. Otherwise, it rests dormant or works in the background.

Thanks vansmith! I'm required to enter my keychain password every time I open an app, or an app is required to access another app's resources. On average, every 5 minutes. I've removed requirements for most apps and sites I use regularly, however it has not stopped.

What apps are requesting that you enter your keychain password? That's not normally a requirement unless that app directly accesses it.

Are you logged in as an admin or standard user, and have you changed your password lately??

Maybe see: OS X: Keychain Access asks for keychain "login" after changing login password (http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1631)
