comment OSX asking for my password
This is a little vague... what specific situations are you being prompted for your password in, in which you feel you shouldn't be? In general, the password prompts are a security feature. I'm not sure if there's a way to disable them globally, but if there is, it's probably not a wise thing to do anyway.

comment MacBook Pro won’t sleep automatically — no process preventing sleep according to pmset. What’s going on?
With Caffeine turned on I get sleep 30 in pmset, so it doesn't look like that's a reliable way to determine which processes may be preventing sleep. I occasionally experience problems with sleep not happening correctly, but I haven't been able to sort them out. Usually I just reboot and then the problem will go away for a while.

I'm not familiar with pmset. What are you expecting it to show when sleep is being prevented? I have Caffeine turned on right now and the output from my pmset looks almost exactly the same as yours.

comment Cannot establish HTTPS connection
Gio solved it, but I had the same thought as you. I have nothing installed besides the built in firewall, but I do have that turned on. I tried turning it off, but it didn't fix the problem, so I turned it back on.

comment Cannot establish HTTPS connection
Looks like that was it exactly. Thanks! I'm confused, though: why does a keychain problem prevent me from using HTTPS?

comment How to identify if my Mac is running slow or is just over the hill?
I think it's very unlikely that the hard disk could be the problem; a higher-RPM drive should only make things faster, and if the disk were failing it would cause a variety of problems, but probably not general sluggishness. However, if that is a concern of yours you could try the free trial of SMART utility, which can detect disk problems: volitans-software.com/smart_utility.php
