sudo access


If you are not root and just a superuser and you need to access some administration application in GUI, it usually asks you for your password. I notice that after you have input your password and close the application, when you open it again it won't ask you for your password again. How can you adjust that it will always ask for the password eventhough you have just entered it? Thanks.
